My Students

The students in my class are creative, eager, and willing to tackle challenging projects. To try to keep up with them...or even stay ahead...I bring new ideas to them by way of guest speakers, Project Based Learning opportunities, and outside of the box experiences.

When thinking about my students, the fact that almost all participate in Instrumental Music, stand in line to sign up for Lego or Computer Club, or show up in great numbers to audition for our After School Drama program continues to amaze me with their varied interests and enthusiasm to learn.

My Project

Physical activity is an important part of growing up healthy. Sometimes kids just don't have an interest in being active because they haven't found something fun to DO. With this equipment, students will become caught up in waving the giant parachute and watching classmates race and run underneath. The familiar hula hoop is a great way to get moving as well as trying to step through the challenging agility ladders.

With this fancy footwork and lots of fun, my students will find new ways to be active and stay healthy.

They will build healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
