My Students

Our middle school students range from grade 6 to 8 and are preteens and early teenagers. They are learning about themselves alongside the academic lessons we provide in school.

My students are fun-loving, inquisitive, excited students who come to school for all the right reasons: to grow as learners, to enjoy education, and to socialize with friends!

These 7th graders are on the verge of their teenage years and enjoying all of the excitement that comes with being a middle schooler. Life in the middle, between childhood and adulthood, gives them a chance to explore their own personalities and interests!

My Project

Have you ever experienced an escape room? Tried to make sense of a situation without rules or directions by working with friends? If so, you know how exciting that situation can be!

Our students love the chance to collaborate in breakout situations to practice skills and learn new material!

These Breakout EDU kits will help us set up games for our students to be challenged in non-traditional ways. These situation-style opportunities allow learners to assess problems, utilize background knowledge, practice perseverance, engage in teamwork, and get excited about the chance to breakout!

Our team of teachers will use these kits to set up challenges for students to use unique materials (like Ancient Roman coins!), practice math skills, show off their reading comprehension, solve science mysteries, and investigate history. In my classroom, I will use them for introducing new material and reviewing at the end of units. Our students love this method of engagement in the classroom, and it makes them thrilled to learn in an active way!
