My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching an amazing group of 6th grade students.My class is part of a Pre-Kindergarten through grade six school in a rural community. We do a lot of community building both within the school and out in the town. The students entered my class this year and immediately asked what kind of community project we could do this year. This shows the type of kids that they are. They are concerned with helping others as much as they are concerned with helping themselves.

My students show true enthusiasm for learning and are a great example for the other students in our school.

Curiosity is part of their nature and they embrace challenges with a positive attitude. They go out of their way to help younger students in our building and step up in any way asked of them.

My Project

Critical thinking and problem solving are important skills for children to have. It's also great to have fun while improving those skills. Add the benefit of team work and cooperation to it and we have a perfect activity for any classroom.

Breakout EDU kits give us the opportunity to build important life skills as well as curricular ones.

Students ask to participate in these activities and are truly excited when they know we will be doing one.

We've tried a few of these with the locks that can be purchased at regular stores, but they have broken or require making changes to the game. A true breakout EDU kit and platform access would mean that we could utilize all of the games to better match to our curriculum and have an authentic experience with the correct locks and lock boxes.
