My Students

As an educator working in a Title I-funded school, I set high expectations for my kiddos, and the depth of genuine commitment between all teachers and students is at the heart of our community. Science is fun when the kids are engaged in their learning and encouragement always fuels the fun! The education regarding the hands-on experiences has built my students' confidence and pride while learning in a progressive Science environment.

Having a positive way to use all that 6th grade energy is an amazing experience for my diverse classroom and here community is everything!.

Each day our classroom's challenges change as the new variants come into our classroom. All of my students have shown incredible interest in veterinary medicine, science, engineering, and medicine. These times that we live in now present a new set of challenges to this next generation of learners. I want to help my students by providing them with limitless learning to remove barriers and allow them the opportunity to shine in our STEM-based curriculum.

My Project

Journaling is important for mental health and growth beyond the classroom, help me give my young scholars unique and creative journals to serve as an outlet for their thoughts! COVID-19 has had such a negative impact on student's mental health and well-being. I want to make sure that this school as we try and reintegrate students back into the building that mental health and self-care are made a priority in my classroom.

Some students will still have reservations and anxieties about returning to school so, journaling is a great practice to help them get their thoughts out onto paper, not bottling up their feelings on the inside.

Additionally, students have stress and have to learn how to healthily manage their emotions, so these journals will be used to practice a variety of positive emotional and mental health techniques that we will learn over the course of the year.
