My Students

Good afternoon! I would like to take a moment to tell you about the wonderful students that I get the privilege to teach every day. I work in a public school in Arkansas and teach Enrichment classes to elementary students grades K-5. My students are super excited to come to school and love to take on new challenges.

We do group activities to build teamwork skills and social skills.

My students love these activities and work awesome together helping their classmates become successful. We are a certified Energy Bus school district and work hard to engage students in activities that build their social, emotional, and educational skills. We strive to help them to succeed both in the classroom and outside in their every day life.

My lessons are built to foster creativity and inspire students to think outside of the box and try new things. Every child learns, but not in the same way or even in the same day, we have to find ways to differentiate lessons and meet students where they are so we can help them be successful. As an Enrichment teacher, I strive to make learning inviting and fun for all my students.

My Project

Please help me give my students the ability to engage in hands on learning, while broadening their IQ. Our school offers PLTW Stem courses as well as a robotics team, starting in 4th grade. This project will allow our younger students the ability to have some stem experience and help prepare them for our Robotics program.

These IQ Builder kits will allow my students of all ages the opportunity to broaden their IQ while enjoying learning.

Fun education is a daily challenge, and studies have shown that students are more engaged and minds are more active while taking part in hands on projects.

My average class size is 21 to 25 students per class. Students will break into small groups of 4 to build and construct the design that their group has chosen to build. What a great opportunity to foster imagination and build self esteem!
