My Students

My students come to school every day eager to learn. They are so excited for the fun and engaging things we will do that day in each subject area.

The students that I am teaching today are our country's leaders of tomorrow.

Every child is capable of learning and must be provided with the materials and tools to do so. It has been proven that the more engaging and exciting lessons are for students, the more they will learn from that lesson.

My Project

My students are being introduced to each area of STEM education throughout the year. While my classroom library is growing, I would like to add some titles that showcase how female scientists have changed the world.

This could be the motivation they need to show them that they are capable of many things in their future in this field.

In addition, the math games Kitki THREE STICKS Math Game Puzzles and Math for Love Prime Climb will provide a fun way to incorporate many new math skills that students sometimes have a hard time understanding. If they apply these skills by using a game, they will more likely be able to show these skills in other areas.
