I have 12 of the most wonderful students a teacher could ask for! They are always willing to do what is asked, and they are always wanting to try new things in class. My students have unique abilities, and it is fun to see those abilities come out in various activities.
Some of my students come from rough home lives, and they really thrive on the support they get while at school.
We do many things to help them understand they are of value not only at school and in our classroom but also in life. Some of my students are being raised by grandparents, single parents,and some with parents with special needs themselves.
The high school has great diversity. We have both low income and those who are more affluent. The majority of my students do not come from the affluent but rather the lower-income segment.
The future belongs to those that STEM! Giving my students challenging and engaging activities will help them to develop engineering skills that they can use in the future.
Having a variety of construction sets in our classroom will provide them with an important tactile experience and expand their minds.
With these items, my students will be able to have access to STEM Bins frequently during their week.
They will be able to work on challenging tasks when they finish work early, during earned free time, and during our weekly class STEM time. These building sets will provide mathematical and engineering skills, while the Hexbugs and tracks will challenge their thinking skills and learn basic physics concepts through trial and error.
