My Students

Engaged, excited, and enthusiastic. My students all attend my school because they want to. Each of them have a desire to make their lives better, and to improve the world around them. They show compassion towards one another, and care deeply about their community. Inside and outside of the school they are leaders and the innovators of tomorrow. When faced with challenges they put on their thinking caps and forge onward.

My students are focused on solving problems that happen in the real world.

Through project -based learning and a focus on STEM concepts they learn to be the future leaders of the world. Some of them, however, simply don't know where to start. Limited experiences can hamper a student's ability to effect change because they simply do not have enough experience to see where they can make change.

My Project

It is easy to get caught up in the standards based setting of today's schools. The longer I teach however, the more I realize that students need more than just what is in the standards.

Students need to be inspired by diversity, by new ideas, and by challenges they did not expect to face.

Scholastic Storyworks provides a platform for students to step outside of themselves. The articles are high quality, well researched, and unbiased. My students are presented with information but not told how they should form their own opinions. Instead, they are able to use what they have learned and combine it with their own research to become well rounded individuals.

Moreover, Storyworks provides resources I can use to meet my learners at all of their levels. Online resources hit targets at upper and lower levels. Additionally they include multi-media elements that are so important for today's learners.
