My Students

My first graders are very curious about our big world. We have a classroom "Wonder Wall" and the questions they wonder about are truly inspiring. From the typical "Why is the sky blue?" to "Why are there so many kinds of animals?" “Why are whales huge?” and "How did they build the pyramids?"

My students want to know more and then share that knowledge.

My students love to be creative and immerse themselves in their learning and you can help.

My Project

As a Grosvenor Teacher Fellow, National Geographic, and Lindblad Expeditions, have given me the opportunity to experience an expedition to the Galapagos. While I am there, I would love to be able to take 360-degree photos and video to bring this experience back to my classroom and immerse my students in the unique, endangered animals, and the one-of-a-kind geography of the region.

As our planet faces innumerable challenges, my 1st graders and I need to inspire ourselves, our peers, our families, and our entire community to become better stewards of the Earth.

After my expedition is finished and after sharing the visuals, my students will get hands-on​ use of the technology for further collaborative projects in my classroom as they bring their experiences, both in school, on field trips, and wherever their creativity takes them to a wider audience. Student projects will tie in our learning to the sustainability of our planet and allow them to offer inspiration, as well. This camera will provide a wonderful way for my students to integrate photography, filmmaking, and creativity, as well as environmental and geographic literacy into the Science, Social Studies, and ELA curriculum.
