My Students

As their first school experience, I try to create an environment full of enthusiasm and energy to get my students excited and ready to learn each day. We begin with a morning meeting to welcome everyone and set the stage for a great day. I encourage all my students to dream big and never give up on their ideas.

While my students come from many different backgrounds and abilities, each child brings a unique situation to our classroom.

We value differences and encourage each other as we are learning and growing throughout the year.

We are a high performing K-5 elementary school in a suburb of Washington, D.C., where many students come from military families. My classroom family consists of 26 bubbling students who love learning!

My Project

Our class is in need of STEM materials for our iPlay and Stem centers. Students are engaged in their learning when they are able to explore, create, and design their own ideas. They need opportunities to use manipulatives to apply their ideas through collaboration using real-world situations and improve their higher order thinking skills. By giving students hands-on materials, the children can learn to troubleshoot through trial and error while exploring in the classroom.

By using the STEM kits, my students can learn to work collaboratively and problem solve while enhancing their social skills with others.

By including literacy and math tie-ins, my kindergarteners will be able to have fun while learning essential skills for the future. We thank you in advance for your support. Full STEAM ahead!
