My Students

My 4th and 5th grade students come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, just like the city we live in (San Francisco). Their life experiences and academic proficiency levels cover a wide range.

We try to keep our educational experiences as fun, hands-on and vivid as possible.

Each year, for social studies, we participate in at least one overnight living history program, such as going to Fort Ross to relive the experiences of Russian settlers and Native Americans or going to Angel Island's Camp Reynolds to relive a day in the life of Union soldiers stationed in California during the Civil War. We also enjoy going sailing on a replica 19th-century vessel around the Bay to learn about sailing mechanics, ecology and maritime history.

For science, we enjoy going to Ano Nuevo State Park to watch elephant seals in their with their seasonal habitat. This year, we would also like to go to Pie Ranch in Pescadero to partake in an all-day farming, cooking and baking. My students truly are seasoned explorers and adventurers.

My Project

My students will partake in experiential learning, feeling connected to soil and exploring open spaces.

Upon arrival, the group will be divided into three teams: farm, culinary and pie baking; the farm team will work alongside members of their farm apprentice group on a seasonal farm project, the culinary team will work with their chef educator to prepare lunch, and the pie team will create and bake pies from scratch.

The groups will reunite to enjoy the lunch buffet and pies made fresh that day to conclude the visit.

Students will learn about the importance of sustainable farming and the connection between their environment, the food they eat and their health.
