My Students

I teach twenty-one enthusiastic third graders who all love to learn. In our classroom, everyone is a teacher and everyone is a learner. We take learning into our own hands and are excited when we are able to work with new resources.

The heart and soul of my class is creativity and innovation.

Nothing excites them more than learning something new and applying it to their real life. As their teacher, I am proud of their efforts to always be the best version of themselves.

My Project

When it comes time for my students to problem solve, it is hard for them to not give up after the first try. Motivating them to keep going forward is a challenge that faces many teachers and parents today. With the Breakout EDU kit, my students will be immersed in real-life challenges that force them to use critical thinking skills, collaboration, and will motivate them to never give up.

This kit will show my students that if they keep pushing forward, they will be successful.

With the power of learning taken into their own hands, my students will be able to solve problems in almost every subject area by thinking outside of the box, while collaborating with their peers. We are excited about this unique opportunity in our third-grade classroom, and thank you in advance for your support!
