My Students

I teach highly gifted students who love to learn. They are constantly looking for ways to challenge the way they think. My students also love working together to help each other learn.

My students are enthusiastic learners who love to challenge themselves to new heights by learning things above their grade level.

My students are very curious and love to ask questions that take their on-level learning to new places. My students are already excited about calculus and physics, even in 4th and 5th grades!

My Project

Learning is more meaningful when experienced. Through this field trip, my students will experience physical science firsthand in a way that they cannot experience it at school.

iFly says, "Your students will get fired up about math and physics when they see it come to life in a state-of-the-art wind tunnel.

Our highly trained STEM educators guide students through an immersive, hands-on experience that consists of:

An interactive presentation on real-world STEM applications led by STEM Educator.

Lab activity and immersive experiments (based on grade level).

Physics demonstrations in the wind tunnel.

One-on-one flying with a certified world-class iFLY flight instructor (two flights per student).

It’s so much more than a lesson — it’s an enriching day of fun and learning that they’ll remember the rest of their lives!"
