Ms. Morantus from Bridgeport CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Full STEAM Ahead!

My students need STEAM related books, and activities to help spark their curiosity about what they are learning, enable them to creatively solve problems, and leave them wanting to learn more.

My Students

My students are awesome! I love teaching them new things, and learning from them as well. They come from different backgrounds, and it’s great to see what we can all do together.

The students are truly an inspiration, and continue to make a positive impact on those around them.

It is always a humbling experience to see them grow, and how they bring about growth in me as a teacher.

Making my students' learning more exciting is my goal! There is so much out there waiting to be discovered!

My Project

There are now many acceptable ways to solve problems on a daily basis. I want my students to know that it is okay for their approach to be different. Using their creativity, and understanding the process that they used to get the answer is what's important!

The STEAM books that I am requesting, are going to help students relate to how the characters go about solving problems, and it will encourage them to apply their understanding of problem solving while working with the different activities.

These items that I'm requesting will continue to help my students be confident thinkers, and better problem solvers. I am looking forward to seeing different creative ideas come from them, throughout the rest of the school year!
