My Students

My students are a diverse group of kids who come from all walks of life. I have kids who come from section 8 housing as well as foster kids and middle income students.

Due to our high number of lower income students, we are considered an at-risk school.

However, because of our middle income families, we are unable to get Title I funding which would provide so many more resources. Regardless of socioeconomics, all my students are energetic, curious, and enthusiastic learners!

My Project

Gears are one of the best STEM learning toys young children can use. They encourage creative problem solving, spatial recognition, understanding of cause and effect, and so much more. These are all things that young engineers need to learn!

Ideal for students that are fascinated by things that move.

Gear kits are something that students of all ages can totally get into! Gears are a great way to encourage open ended thinking and creative brainstorming. These construction sets will provide my students with the opportunity to explore how gears cam connect and move together as an important mechanism for engineering.
