My Students

I love my students because they inspire me to be the best teacher I can be. They help me to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. They are a spirited, creative and loving bunch of kiddos.

My students love a challenge.

They like STEM activities and are very into technology. I try to incorporate these things into our day, while also building community and relationships within the class.

I am blessed to work with these kids each day. They make me happy to come to work and every day holds a new adventure for us to discover!

My Project

Kanoodle games will be used to inspire higher order thinking skills. They will be used during STEM time as an extension of STEM activities. These will give students more choices in their STEM activities.

Kids love Kanoodle games!

They love being able to figure out the puzzles even when they are very challenging! I have never seen a student give up when working a Kanoodle game. They will keep working until solved.

I would love to have these in my classroom as I am trying to build my STEM selection. I believe they are helpful and fun for the students.
