My Students

My students come from all over the world, from different families and financial backgrounds, but they have one thing in common. They all LOVE learning! Our school is at the edge of a rural city a block from the beach, and it serves a diverse group of children from 23 different countries. Of my 17 students, three receive special education services, 12 are English Language Learners, and more than half receive free or reduced price lunch.

My class is a vibrant group of learners who are excited by project-based learning activities, love to create, explore, and manipulate, and love to share their learning with others.

They are engineers, architects, problem-solvers, team players, makers, creators, and hands-on learners. They are energetic, silly, and extremely active children who love to get up and move. They make me excited to come to work each day!

My Project

My young learners have amazing imaginations! They love to build and create and always have a story to go along with whatever they are doing. In my 2nd grade class we use our Maker Space building materials throughout the days across all subject areas. My Maker Space is in need of Strictly Bricks Baseplates and Mini figures so that my students can create/design/and build whatever their imaginations are dreaming up . We will be using the baseplates daily for different STEM challenges, as well as during indoor recess time.

“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom” ~ Socrates.

Teaching through inquiry and exploration is something I love doing because it ignites a spark in students because they are invested in what they are learning. Having these materials would help my students express whatever it is their imaginations are brewing!
