My Students

My students come from a Title I school where about 60% of the students qualify for reduced-price or free lunch. With that stated, I am fortunate to have a fourth grade classroom filled with the most unique and wonderful students. They come equipped with magnificent minds, determination to learn, and the ability to think deeply. Wonderful students, wonderful minds! To ensure their success, my fourth grade classroom has become a place of challenge and discovery. Students spend their year learning the foundation of knowledge and skills they will need to continue to grow and have success in advanced grades to come.

From deep down in the rural part of Roosevelt, Utah, these students are excited to explore the world of learning in their academic surroundings.

They push themselves to the capacity in academic skills, life skills, and critical thinking. They take pride in what they are learning and challenge their individual minds to continue to grow inside and outside of their school walls.

My Project

This Engineering Aid Drop Packages will help my students more hand on learning materials to add to our stem options. Our students are incredible and ready to take on a challenge. When our district transferred me, I found my students were ecstatic to learn anything I give them. Unfortunately, my students are unable to learn in an engaging, hands-on way. I would love to provide all of my fourth-grade students the opportunity to become successful in STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and math and reach their full academic success.

These STEM bins will give my students the challenge and progression they deserve, and help them see how far they can flourish in science, technology, engineering, and math!

This year, I want to add on and revamp projects where students apply their learning in student-led experiments. This will be an amazing experience to show how much effort goes into the world of science, technology, engineering, and math. The items in this project will be used to make multiple STEM bin sections in our classroom. The straws, straw building blocks, string, marshmallow, and toothpicks will allow the students to build towers and engage in engineering. LEGOs and other bocks will engage the students in Math and Engineering as well. The paper will allow the students to print the findings and how they develop their thinking. They will use technology to write and demonstrate their creations. Specific LEGO kits are designed to engage students in the science aspect of STEM. All this equipment will be used in multiple STEM bins that students will have access to at all times. Students will be able to engage in STEM and can take it a step further by actually using hands-on experience to explore the world of STEM!
