My Students

I teach excited 6th graders math in an economically disadvantaged middle school. Over 60% of students come from low-income families. Like most 6th graders, my students enjoy being active and engaging in hands-on learning!

I am dedicated to providing a student-centered environment for success for my students!

Having your support in creating our learning environment means I am able to do even more for my students! Thanks to my generous donors, I've been able to make some amazing changes that have allowed my students to enjoy learning! We are helping my students develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime!

My Project

Logic skills, critical thinking, and creative thinking are difficult to teach. We need activities and experiences to help build and strengthen these abilities! ThinkFun has a great variety of puzzle type games that really engage students and require them to really think! ThinkFun is the world’s leader in fun games that stretch and sharpen your mind.

ThinkFun’s award-winning games, brainteasers, and puzzles help stimulate crucial brain development in logic, visual/spatial, math, language, focus, and reasoning, preparing kids for a world that revolves around STEM skills.

I already have a few ThinkFun games in my classroom that I let early finishers use. They love these games and always ask for them anytime there are a few minutes to spare! Having a quick to grab activity when a lesson doesn't go as long as expected is a life saver in the classroom. When I have students who don't have a library book to read, having these games on hand is the perfect alternative to scrambling to find something to do or handing out another worksheet! I would love to have more ThinkFun games to use in my classroom!
