My Students

Welcome to our 4th grade classroom! Our classroom is an inclusion classroom servicing students with varying ability levels and needs, coming from a some difficult backgrounds.

We do our best to motivate our students to be the very best they can be!

A number of our students lack the resources and support at home to be successful, so we do our best to support and motivate our students in the classroom. We hope to create the great minds of the future!

My Project

Breakout EDU is an immersive learning game platform.

Help turn our classroom into an academically-focused escape room!

Breakout EDU facilitates games where players/students use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box. Games are available for all ages and content areas!

Breakout EDU kits are not only highly motivating for students but they also help to teach them academic AND life skills. Students must learn to work together to solve the puzzles. These kits provide hands on activities breaking our classroom free from the boring, traditional text books and worksheets.
