My Students

I teach science to fourth graders. The students in my classes have a variety of learning abilities and learning styles. I have resource and life skills students in and out of my classroom throughout the day. All of the students are great kids who want to learn new things. We have recently set up a science lab for 4th graders, and we are trying to make it very hands-on and accessible to all 4th graders.

My students come from a rural area and many do not have access to or have not been exposed to a lot of technology.

I feel students need to begin learning about STEAM more and at an earlier age than they used to. Many students will end up with careers in STEAM and I want to see my students better prepared to be problem solvers and be able to deal with day to day life.

My Project

At VUE, we have started to place more of an emphasis on STEAM. We realize that through STEAM activities our students are becoming more well-rounded citizens and better prepared for the work force. They are also better prepared to be problem solvers and be able to deal with day to day life. We have a new 4th grade science lab that we are trying to fully equip, and this funding would help us fulfill this vision.

Our 4th grade science class has already done many hands-on lesson this year.

We are using a lot of Project Lead the Way modules, some Stemscopes, and a lot of other activities that we are pulling in. With the 3D printer I am requesting, I plan on teaching the students how to use software to teach them how to make thier own 3D printed objects. I am going to teach perimeter and area, landforms and many other projects that are part of our science, math and language curriculum with this tool.

With the vinyl cutter, I plan on teaching students another program on the computer, and in the future have students be able to make items to earn money to also teach them business skills.

My students have been very engaged and excited about science this year. I have been excited to teach science after teaching math for 12 years. I believe the students can feel my excitement!
