My Students

Teaching in a low income/high poverty school gives me the opportunity to work with kids who come to school with many personal challenges. Although these students may come to me with these challenges, it is my passion to develop a safe, comfortable, and meaningful learning environment which gives each student the chance to reach their highest potential.

When they come to me in August, they become a part of me.

Although childhood should be a joyful, carefree time of exploration, many times children living in poverty spend more time struggling to survive within their world. In my class, I desire to provide stability and emotional support while motivating and engaging the interests of my students. In doing this, I hope to build their self-confidence and allow them to see their full academic and lifelong potential.

My Project

There’s a buzz around Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in elementary education these days. One reason that it’s so important to encourage STEM learning early in elementary school is that the process of inquiry that is integral to STEM is the way young children naturally learn. Through exploration and guided lessons using the Lego Community Kit and Magna-Tiles my students will get a head start on the STEM activities they will encounter in upper grades. It is my hope to instill a love of STEM that can be fostered and built upon through my students’ years of education and possibly even in their careers!
