My Students

Our students are happy to be at school. We are a low socioeconomic community in a large urban district. Our population is very diverse with many students who speak another language as their primary form of communication. Students find school to be a place of security, consistency, and positive role models.

I am in a newly created position as the Makerspace teacher.

Students are excited to come to the library and use their creativity to imagine and design. It's a unique experience for them to get hands-on time to build, draw and engage with learning. Despite language barriers, food insecurity and other issues these children struggle with, in the Makerspace they can find pride in their inventions.

My Project

In our Makerspace, students can explore their creativity by building, drawing, and designing with various materials. We're also aligning the lessons with our goals of building Social Emotional strength in our students.

As part of the Kindness Rocks projects, students write kind and inspiring messages on rocks.

They "paint" the rocks with gel pen messages, as these pens work really well on the surface of rocks. They then distribute the rocks around the community in order to make someone else's day better. They spread the kindness and learn the importance of thinking of ways to help others have a better day.
