My Students

Our students are scientists. Our students are mathematicians. Our students are readers and authors. Our students are explorers. My students make discoveries each and every day. Our students are budding athletes.

It is our mission to provide our students with a challenging and inquiry-based STEM curriculum to maximize individual potential and ensure that our students succeed in a global community.

Our goal is to expose students to as many learning opportunities that will prepare them for the future as possible, all while bringing to the forefront ideas and concepts that they may not have considered before.

Our school is a place filled with family. Not only do we serve and have families who entrust us with their children, we have our own family. This family includes our classroom families, our school community family, and our family of staff. We consider each day as an opportunity to learn something new and support our family members on their path to success.

My Project

After receiving our first set of floor seats, my students couldn't get enough! We have 4 floor seats in our classroom now, but we need more! All of our students deserve comfortable spaces to learn, not just a select few!

Kids love sitting on the floor, but it isn't always conducive to learning.

Students need to be able to work productively while sitting on the floor. These floor seats are exactly what my students need to be successful learners. They are not only comfortable but easily washable with a zip-off cover. This makes them easy to care for, and exactly what 5th grade students need.
