My Students

Our school is a small, rural school district with a large percentage of students receiving free and reduced-price lunch. My students are energetic, inquisitive, and full of life. They come in every day ready to grow as learners and individuals. They give their all every time they enter the classroom.

Together we don't know everything, but we are always striving to learn something new.

Math is usually a dreaded subject for students My goal is to help students LOVE math the way that I do by allowing them to learn using collaboration and student-led learning.

My Project

Please help to give our students the opportunity to escape mundane classroom learning with the Breakout EDU Class Bundle requested. The great thing about escape rooms is that the puzzles the students need to solve in order to “win” or “escape” don’t have to be overly complicated. Close readings with questions afterward whose answers have certain letters highlighted will work just fine. You can also try math problems whose numbers are a lock combination. Or maybe you want to try a riddle about an event in social studies. These can all be used as tasks in an escape room lesson.

It's time to CRUSH boredom by transforming our classroom into kids escape room adventure.
