My Students

Our school is full of eager and energetic learners. All of our students have capabilities, talents, and strengths, all that is missing is exposure and motivation.

Our students take pride in seeing their hard work and pay off.

This is vital to their success since they come from an environment that doesn't always value education. Our school is high poverty, but that too is just an obstacle we will overcome.

The students in my classroom enjoy moving about the room and engaging in hands-on, interactive activities. Both their bodies and minds are always on the move!

My Project

I would like to build a 8x8 LEGO wall in our school's Innovation Lab. It is proven that LEGOs promote fine motor skills, encourage team work and creativity, develops problem solving and mathematical thinking, improves persistence, and develops lateral thinking and planning skills.

Each student in our school would benefit from improving these skills.

Which means each student in our school would benefit from having a LEGO wall!

I plan on having certain STEM tasks for my students to complete using the LEGO wall such as pixelated images. I also plan to have my students exercise their creativity by building their own designs.
