My Students

My students are a group of enthusiastic and dynamic 5th grade scholars who want to become amazing and extraordinary adults! We are tweens who love to learn and be challenged. We are dreamers, adventurers, and creatives!

We learn best through hands-on learning experiences and love to debate, analyze, and question why.

We are future college students and future doctors, police officers, and cartoonists.

We form a learning community based on respect, friendship, and mutual understanding. We are the mighty Mustangs!

My Project

After having the amazing opportunity to learn under Mr. Ron Clark of the famed Ron Clark Academy, Mrs. Roach and Mrs. Evans seek to create a unique, exciting, and flourishing learning environment that students will never forget.

Some of the items we saw used included a djemebe drum that helps keep the beat and pace of lessons by having students drum along to the lesson and cheer for students with specific beats..

Barrina UV LED Blacklight bars, Tingkam LED strip light kits, and Litake party lights disco balls will transform our everyday environment into a learning party and when used effectively will increase student engagement and excitement during lessons! The Techni Mobili Mobile & Compact Complete Computer Workstation Desk will allow us, as teachers, to remain standing and moving during our lessons and eliminate the need for us to sit at a desk and stall out ours lessons.

These materials will help to create a learning environment where students are focused and engaged, digging deep into their own learning, while also having a blast at the same time! Research has shown that students are not passive learners, and the days of learning from out-dated textbooks are long gone! These amazing resources will develop students' passion for school and learning that will mark their last year of elementary school.
