My Students

My students this year are beyond phenomenal! They take on daily tasks with enthusiasm and such passion! Each day we share laughter, foster positivity, encourage one another to take risks.

My students inspire me.

Each day, we laugh and engage with lessons and face adversity with courage. Their positivity is contagious. The current class of students I have this year are exceptional movers and shakers. They deserve to have resources and supplies to accommodate their various learning styles. ALL of my students are bright, resourceful, and adamant about utilizing relevant and reliable supplies to help better their daily learning experiences.

My Project

As stated previously, the current class of students I have this year are exceptional. They deserve to have resources and supplies to both engage and challenge them. Generally speaking, game-based supplies have been proven to support the learning environment, student attention, and overall engagement. My current group of students have requested a variety of engaging and fun game-based material to better their classroom experience.

To be precise, our students have to make do with what teachers can provide, if at all.

I want to be able to offer a variety of games that we can use freely, when appropriate, to better their needs being met and enhance their overall enjoyment and experience of the daily standards, skills and tasks. Giant Jenga, Connect Four, updates to our current Bazinga game and an Escape Game would engage and challenge them.
