My Students

Do you know what makes our school the best place in the world? Other than the rock star teachers and creative little learners, it's the community that surrounds us. It's our classroom community, our school community and our small little community where we all live and support each other. The students on our campus come to school excited to learn about and explore their world every day!

Our school really is a tight-knit family.

That means if we need something, we work for it. If we make a mistake, we learn and grow from it. And if we can make our learning more meaningful and fun, we do it! Nothing can stop us! Not even Hurricane Harvey could slow us down! We are Wildcat Strong! This year I'd really like to provide my honors classes experiences of a lifetime!

My Project

With the Lego community starter set, students will be able to engage in STEM (engineering) projects that will encourage them to use skills learned in science/math to carry out investigations, build and program models.

My students love to experiment and create!

With the Lego community starter set, they will definitely be inspired to become the next engineer solving todays’ current challenges.

They will be able ask questions and solve problems by using models they design, design prototypes and investigate how they work, and analyze and interpret data that uses complex thinking. Thank you so much for supporting the creativity of our students!
