My Students

I have the honor of teaching the most intelligent, enthusiastic, and knowledge-thirsty students in the world! We are a Title I primary school, but that does not stop my students from working hard. I am a STEAM teacher, so my students are taught to be problem solvers. They enter my classroom each day excited and ready to learn new concepts.

My classroom is a melting pot of cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ability levels; but all of those differences are left at the door.

When my students enter my classroom, we are a family, and find ways to overcome the differences and help each other succeed. They are a very active and energetic bunch who love to participate in fun, engaging, and hands-on activities.

My Project

My students really enjoy all of the activities we do in our STEAM classroom. However, if we were to take a vote on their most favorite activity, it would be those that involve LEGO bricks.

With LEGO Bricks, the possibilities are endless!

The sets I have requested will come with a few instruction cards that the students will use to practice following directions. But that is just where the creativity starts! My young engineers will be able to use the 1,000 bricks to build anything in their imagination! We already have a few LEGO bricks in my classroom, but we do not have enough for everyone to use them at one time. Having these sets will allow all of my students to unleash their creativity at the same time. Thank you for considering my project!
