My Students

We need high-quality teachers! My students have the potential to become just that. My students range from 10th-12th grade and are considering a career in the education realm. These future teacher rock-stars are already changing the future with elementary and middle school students by helping them reach their highest potential.

"Tell me and I'll forget.

Teach me and I'll remember. Involve me and I'll learn." - Benjamin Franklin

Without hesitation, all of my students have a passion to go into the education field. They do not sit back; instead, they go out into the schools and actively work with elementary and middle school students in our district.

My students range in age from 15-18 and are from three different cities with different backgrounds. These students love being able to give back to their community as evidenced by their former projects, where they've spent their own money on their students time and time again.

My Project

My students are future educators. Collaboration is key to success, in the education realm as well as in other areas. Having access to board games will not only promote social interaction, but will help with academic skills as well. Other games will aid in collaboration.

Often, learning occurs when students don't even realize it; when they are engaged, having fun, and enjoying the lesson.

The board game of Monopoly helps with a wide-array of mathematical skills as well as financial planning. Clue, another board game, helps to promote critical thinking skills and with inference skills.

Student learning will increase with these classic, yet enjoyable, board games!
