My Students

My elementary students represent such diversity in a variety of ways! They have different home experiences and different learning experiences, all of which have helped shape who they are today. My job this year as their teacher is to provide them with the best possible year to help further enhance their life experience!

This phenomenal group of kids deserve every possible chance to succeed-no matter what it takes!

We are a large, Title I school with many struggling learners (including students experiencing transiency issues and homelessness) who need unique opportunities that a traditional student may not require.

My Project

Our learning lab is home to nearly 600 students throughout the week- from Pre-K to 5th grade! These children all learn best with hands-on experiences.

These K'Nex sets with animal themes will help my littlest learners build a friend and learn about the habitat and needs of that creature!

Students who understand the animal world around them show such compassion towards all living creatures.

We love to rotate through centers and do a variety of plugged AND unplugged activities. STEM-themed activity sets like these K'Nex building kits will help promote engaging learning experiences that can, in turn, coordinate with community and collaboration-based projects!
