My Students

My students are typical six and seven-year olds--curious and full of energy for life and learning!

When it comes to education, I strive to foster curiosity, collaboration, and joy!

Every student is unique and I work hard to build a caring classroom community where people and ideas are respected and celebrated; where it is safe to take risks in order to grow; and where learning is challenging, yet fun! I do everything I can to guide students in their academic, social, and emotional development.

My Project

Technology is used every day in our classroom. Besides using technology for literacy, we have begun using it for inquiry, too. With inquiry-based learning, students do a good deal of independent research to answer questions about a topic we are studying. Then they find creative ways to share their learning with others.

By donating to my project, you will allow my students to turn their CURIOSITY into DISCOVERY when we engage in inquiry-based learning.

The additional four devices will create a 2:1 student to technology ratio, making it easier for more students to access technology as a tool for learning.
