My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school in Alaska, I see students being faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, my goal is to keep the classroom atmosphere positive and inspired and to provide students with meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, motivated, and love to learn.

They like to read, write, and draw about their lives and interests. They love positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. All of them are remarkable individuals.

When the children walk in the door of my classroom, they are met with a handshake, a smile, and a positive comment to welcome them to a fantastic day of school. I focus on their potential, interests, and growth. Every one of them wants to learn, and I can help facilitate the best day of learning possible.

My Project

I would love to do more fun and exciting STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Art/Math) activities with my students, and am hoping to obtain the materials needed to make that possible. If we have materials readily on hand, like cups, cotton balls, toothpicks, Play-Doh, marbles, craft sticks, rubber bands, crayons, and string, we could participate in a lot more of these great collaborative thinking and constructing activities.

Students love working together to come up with creative solutions.

The STEAM activities we've done so far have been engaging, fun, and full of learning. Kids have used materials to creatively come up with solutions to many problems, for example: "Construct a model of a maze with obstacles. Then use wind power to push a marble through the maze in the fastest amount of time," or, "The gingerbread man sees the fox. He needs a hideout so the fox won't see him. Build a hideout for the gingerbread man."

We have some helpful parents of students who are able to send in materials for these projects from time to time, but due to budget cuts it's usually the teacher who ends up stopping at the store on the way to school in order to provide these great hands-on learning activities. I would love to have all these materials available in my classroom, and to be able to grab them at the moments notice for some wonderful learning fun.

Thank you for your donation to our project!
