My Students

My students come to school with a passion to learn. They strive to make connections in their learning and their daily lives. They ask great questions to better understand the world around them. They are true scientists that hypothesize, investigate, analyze, and present their findings. They love to build and explore things. They are truly a delight to work with.

My students are motivated inquirers.

They collaborate and work with their classmates to expand their world view. They are true IB students in every aspect.

My Project

STEM students need to be challenged to create solutions to real-world problems. iPad minis will allow students to brainstorm and use design skills to sketch their ideas. Encourage students to explore math and science relationships.

An everyday activity like playing catch or throwing a yo-yo can turn into an interactive and collaborative physics lesson for the 6th graders.

4th grade students can build and remove dams from rivers to see the impacts on the landscape using Free Rivers app and 2nd graders can walk around their created 3D shapes using GeoGebra app.

Coding is a 21st century skill that all students should have an opportunity to learn. Using available applications students can learn and write coding.
