My Students

I work in an inner-city school and the majority of my students are Hispanic; with low SE status. My school is a Title I campus. My Gifted and Talented (G/T) students (grades KN-05) love to learn and are always coming up with new unique ideas. In fact, our guiding principles are to think outside the box, to love to learn and to create something new.

In the past students have created everything from their own unique holiday, the ideal city, invented their own original games, created a personal quilt, constructed robots, and so much more.

My Project

Each year during the spring semester, students learn about the history of quilting and how quilts have a history of telling a story. This project provides the materials for students to create their own quilt panel, telling their own story.

The classroom buzzers which will allow us to play a number of games reviewing keep concepts and skills, as my students are very competitive.

Through out this project, my students are exposed to written various authors, compose their own story, examine the visual arts and artists, and reviewing / applying mathematical concepts to both history and actual real world situations.
