My Students

I teach at a STEM school on the south side of Chicago. Our primary focus is to prepare our students for the future using technology, math, and science to guide our instruction. Our students participate in engaging problem-solving projects, use math throughout the day, and imagine themselves in careers that will change the world!

Although our school is in a low-income area, our children are not poor!

They have a lot to offer the world and need the opportunity and experiences that students in more affluent communities are afforded.

My Project

My 1st graders were excited to learn that our school would have a LEGO robotics team...until they found out it was for The Big Kids. My children love to build and create so of course they were heartbroken to find out they were too young to join the LEGO club. LEGO bricks is the first activity to fill up on Fun Fridays. It is a great way for my littles to build, invent and create but unfortunately, our kits have been coming up short lately.

Apparently, my kids have been losing A LOT of the pieces and the LEGO bricks station just isn't what it used to be.

I know how easy it is for the kids to take a couple bricks home - something they know not to do but can't help. Our class has promised to keep the LEGO bricks in the room if we can get a new set.
