My Students

Students at my school come together for many different backgrounds and abilities to create a beautiful community that we call home. We have both self-contained Montessori classes and self-contained gifted classrooms, as well as our mainstream classrooms, so we are able to meet a large variety of learning styles in student needs .

Our outdoor classroom is a place where we can come together and build while exploring concepts in science, the arts, engineering, and more.

We are beyond excited to start learning in our brand new outdoor Montessori environment.

My Project

The different tools and equipment will be wonderful means for students to learn what each tool is used for and how it benefits the process. Starting young they can learn names and uses, but as they grow with the gardens the kids can evolve into helping there own special plant grow itself as they grow and develop with whichever plant they choose. We want our kids to grow and know that they put a lot of work into helping something thrive in this world. Just as parents and teachers help us to thrive and grow each and everyday.

These materials can help both older and younger Montessori students learn different ways to care for and nurture our gardens and future gardens.
