My Students

My second graders are ready to learn once they walk into my classroom each and every morning. They are eager to see what each day holds, and they are always ready to give the day their best work.

I teach in a Title I school in Alabama where a majority of our students receive free or reduced price meals.

My students are caring and compassionate learners ready to make a difference in the world around them. Each day is an amazing adventure.

My Project

My students will greatly benefit from the use of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) bins in our classroom. The students will use items such as LEGOs, magnetic blocks, wooden blocks, craft sticks, Velcro fasteners, pipe cleaners, and straws to collaborate, design, and construct detailed models of various items.

These STEAM bins will allow students of all abilities and learning styles to discuss, design, and create by implementing skills students will use in real-world settings.

By working with peers, students can showcase their individual strengths, abilities, and talents. Many of my students will dyslexic characteristics will create and learn in a multi-sensory process.
