My Students

I have a great group of students excited to begin their educational journeys! I want my young fivers to grow socially, emotionally, and academically. I know that my students will love to learn!

Some of my students come from low income households, so school is a place they seek friendship, support, and love!

I want my students to come to school each day with enthusiasm. I push my students to exceed my expectations and continue to reach for their full potential.

My Project

I recently attended a conference where I learned about Breakout EDU Kits! In a Breakout EDU game, students have to work together, using critical thinking and problem solving skills, to solve multiple clues and, hopefully, open the locked box.

Using FUN in the classroom is key to have REAL learning happen!

I want my students to collaborate with one another and work through curriculum-based clues to solve puzzles. Having students work with concepts, such as letter names, sight words, shape recognition, and counting activities through a fun platform will allow for creativity to emerge and real teamwork to take shape!
