My Students

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishment toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." - Andrew Carnegie

This quote has inspired me as an educator.

I work with an amazing group of children who are eager to learn. I enjoy seeing the excitement in their eyes when we get ready to complete a science lab. My students come from diverse backgrounds which make them unique. Many of my students come from low-income families; however, they are the best kids on the planet.

My Project

Pursuing an occupation in STEM or becoming engaged with STEM at a young age, will open countless doors for a lifetime. As an educator, I feel it is my responsibility to provide my students with the every possible exciting opportunity to learn about the field. I am requesting a kit that will allow me to bring engaging STEM activities and real-world activities.

I am requesting several kits from K'NEX to allow them to problem solving while helping to develop spatial reasoning.

The kit provides my students with rich opportunities for students to explore and create innovative solution . All of these kits will provide students with more opportunities to experience hands on learning. The kits include K'NEX Thrill Rides - 3-in-1 Classic, Model Building Set, Power and Play Motorized Building Set and Explorations: Swing Ride Building .

My students need a fun and interactive way to learn about working together. This will give them the opportunity to strengthen their critical-thinking and creative problem-solving skills and reflect on their entry’s performance and what they could do to improve it.
