My Students

I work in a Title I school in a small community with an amazing group of eighteen kindergarten students and their families. I say families as well because I truly believe in educating the families as well as the students.

"Children should leave each day with smiles on their faces and stories in their hearts!" Author unknown.

The school I work in has had a lot of turnover with staff during the last couple of years, and some of that has to do with the dynamics of the area, but also within our community. Working with these families truly makes you go the extra mile to help the families and students have a better life when they walk through your classroom door.

Many of my students are English language learners from single-family homes, have no pre-school background, and their families struggle to make ends meet. Incorporating activities and engaging learning opportunities in my classroom that follow students home is one of my goals when families have me as their teacher.

My Project

Imagine, Build, and Learn together is what LEGO STEM Night is all about. Bringing families together to engage in STEM activities using LEGO building bricks to apply real-world concepts in physics, engineering, and architecture through engineer-designed projects. Families will discover various STEM concepts through fun, guided building activities, and also enjoy building time.

Families are encouraged to be curious and creative while experiencing a fun-filled event building with their child that will build lifelong exploration.

Early learners use play to open up the world of math, science, and language skills. Using LEGOS will help students develop social and emotional skills that set them up for a lifetime of successful learning. Students will use problem-solving skills and discover how science, technology, engineering, and math affect their everyday life.
