My Students

My first grade students are inquisitive and vibrant learners within an urban, high poverty school district. Our school collaborates, empowers, and pushes our students to do their very best.

Despite challenges my students face, each student tries their best to achieve academically and social emotionally.

From the moment students step into the classroom, they are greeted at the door, are engaged in their learning, and work hard across all subject areas. We work on having a growth mindset to push past barriers and achieve - never giving up.

My Project

My students love to learn through engaging, hands-on activities. There is nothing better than having students engaged through a huge themed, classroom transformation! We need to transform our room for a Glow Day of learning as we inquire about light and shadows. To do this, we need black lights, neon lights and tape, glowing balloons, and glow sticks! These are not your typical classroom supplies, so your donations will help me transform my class into a total day of learning about light and shadows. Without your help, it wouldn't be possible.

SCIENCE SHOULD BE FUN with active lessons for lifelong learning memories!

Just imagine: you are handed a set of glow stick glasses by your teacher, walk into your first grade classroom, and "WOW!" - the room has been completely transformed into a glowing, neon lit learning environment. This is just the start for a truly amazing learning experience, and what my student deserve and need to make scientific connections. I love to set the stage to engage in my classroom - this day of light discovery through Glow Day Games will be the ultimate day of learning.
