My Students

I'm a teacher in a Title I school, in an area where my kids face a lot of obstacles at home and at school. Many of my students are English language learners. A majority of my students also receive free or reduced-price lunch.

I call my mom and dad on my way to school every day, and my mom always ends our call by saying, "Okay, love those kids today!" I take this to heart because I know that my students come into my classroom with many needs and worries on their minds.

My goal every day is to give them to freedom to just be kids when they are in my room.

My students are fun-loving, gregarious, kind and curious. Not a day goes by that one of my students doesn't manage to blow me away with some new creative idea or hilarious commentary on a lesson. I want the absolute best for my students, and I am hoping that I can achieve that goal in part by posting projects here on

My Project

This year, I am hoping to use Legos in my classroom to encourage good behavior, inspire creativity, and develop curiosity in my students. I have a variety of kits on my list that will appeal to the different interests in my classroom.

Legos allow students to engage in pretend play, while building their motor skills, problem solving skills, and creative thinking skills.

I know that my students are craving opportunities for play in my classroom, and I think that Legos are the answer!

I will use these Lego kits as an incentive for good behavior. When students exemplify the expectations in our classroom, they will be allowed to put one Lego brick in a jar. When the jar is full, the whole class will earn a Lego party with all of the kits!
