My Students

My students are awesome to teach. they are excited to learn each day. I love giving hands on activities and projects for them. My style of teaching has them up and active. They rarely stay in their desks.

My students are active and so much fun.

They enjoy learning each day.

Most of our students are low income. Often times when they come to school it is a great escape for them to just be kids. They love to learn.

My Project

These products are going to be used to get students up and active while learning. I have many STEM items and lab items to allow them to have hands on learning so many of them crave.

Kids today are active and want to do things themselves.

This includes learning, they learn better when they can experience rather than just hear what is going to happen. Each of these items will allow them to experience learning first hand. I enjoy taking them to the lab as much as possible. Some of them will never get the chance being from low income households.
