My Students

My students are hardworking, bright, young individuals. They attend school each and every day, ready to learn, and meet our high expectations. My students love challenges and face difficulties each and every day with smiles on their faces.

My students come from a Title I school with a high population of English learners.

Most come from low-income households and have limited resources and experiences. For many of my students, their only chance of life-enriching activities is at school. They love school, and I want to make this place the most enriching place for them!

My Project

Thomas Monson said, "Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting." I wish to give the spirit of giving to my students this year. As the oldest grades, my students are always reminded to be a good role model and an example to the youngest kids on our school campus. That's why I'd like for my students to create gifts for their younger buddies this Holiday season!

With the materials requested, my students will be submerged in coding Turtle art and embroidering, sewing, creating paper and sewable circuits to gift to our Book and Tech buddies!

Students can light up our tech buddies' holiday time with paper circuit cards using copper tape, LED lights, and coin batteries. If my students are ready for a challenge, students can sew their tech buddies a doll using felt, needle, and thread. To make it even brighter and special for the holidays, my students will use conductive thread, LED lights, and special kind of battery holders to make their dolls light up!

Thank you for your consideration in teaching this valuable lesson of giving! Happy Holidays!
