My Students

What a great group of students I have! They are full of energy and spunk. They have the best personalities and make me laugh each day. We call ourselves Superheroes. They try to do things each day to help others and themselves be the best they can be!

My class has many various needs in it.

I have students from all walks of life and varied abilities. These students are welcoming of each other's special Super Powers and needs. They work together as a class to accomplish all they can.

My Project

Children are required to be problem solvers throughout their lives. When presented with situations that are challenging, teachers need to provide their students with strategies to make choices. The creativity that students have and can share with each other allows students to learn from each other.

Through STEAM my students plan, build, test and redesign to solve situations in the best way, while using creativity and cooperative working skills.

After building stage, students are then able to analyze and determine if they need to redesign or make adjustments to their products or theories. STEAM materials allow my students to practice this in a fun and collaborative way, building skills they will need throughout their lives.
