My Students

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela.

Every day, my kids walk into my classroom so full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.

They come from various cultures and economic statuses. My kids love to read and write. They just need the "write" tools. I want to give them the resources to read, write, draw, and to be as creative as they can be!

Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best, "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

My goal as an educator is to teach and provide the resources for my students to reach their given potential, in order for them to change the world.

My Project

I hope to increase the number of fun and exciting activities we have in the classroom. It is important that students get to move and have fun during indoor recess. The games will help students enjoy a break in between all of their hard work.

By having this active play equipment, our class will be able to have fun and get moving during indoor recess.

Giant 4 in A Row, HedBanz Jr., and, Let's Go Fishin' will have students actively moving around the classroom with their peers. These fun-filled activities will encourage teamwork and even support hand/eye coordination. All these activities are soft and safe in order to be used in the classroom during indoor recess.
