My Students

Remember your kindergarten classroom? Full of engaging activities and thought-provoking tasks. Kindergarten set the foundation for who you are today.

We are a brand new Title I school in the heart of Washington, DC.

Construction began to transform an old school that had been shut down for years in a community desperate for a neighborhood education campus dedicated to serving their bright young children. Despite hardships, our students work hard each day to reach their potential!

My Project

It is our goal to enrich learning in the subject areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). I have requested hands-on STEM science activities and STEM fairy tale games in order to promote higher order thinking skills and help my students to become problem solvers! Our classroom will use these STEM resources to further enrich educational experiences - from building bridges to creating motion. These resources promise the honing of problem solving skills and higher order thinking to get students ready for first grade and beyond!

Imagine learning how to build a bridge and ensure the structure is sound in kindergarten!

Our students will emerge as great thinkers with an opportunity like this. Kindergarten is the foundation - help us provide the materials for that foundation to be rock solid!
