My Students

I am very fortunate to work with a group of students coming from multiple backgrounds and perspectives. It's an amazing privilege to teach students about diversity and inclusion while learning so much from them.

My class theme is to "Inspire," and "Be the change you wish to see in the world." -Ghandi.

My students have so much enthusiasm, creativity, and curiosity to make a positive impact in our world.

In our classroom, we are a learning community, and we have a theme of using the force of knowledge to become JediLearners through exploration, engagement, and collaboration in a diverse learning environment. I have a great opportunity to work with a team of three other 4th grade teachers. We constantly share and collaborate to make our classrooms positive learning environments for our students.

As a community, we focus on the PBIS model of promoting responsibility, safety, respect, and engagement. We celebrate the glows and grows among our students in a variety of ways.

My Project

"Creative thinking inspires ideas, ideas inspire change." - Barbara Januszkiewicz

Makerspaces are community centers with tools to create.

Students will have multiple opportunities to use their creativity in full motion through a Makerspace and STEAM learning center. All of the materials will add to our Makerspace that the students absolutely love, such as Lego bricks, magnatiles and k'nex, it will provide a platform for students to think of a project they would like to create using a variety of materials that this project will provide. A Makerspace center allows students to use their 21st century and STEM skills while promoting creativity, critical thinking and, of course, FUN!

When I took a professional development at CUE Rockstar and first learned about a Makerspace, I knew I wanted to try to create one in my classroom. It would be great if I could explore this idea and show the amazing things created by students and then watch the idea spread to my team, eventually throughout my building, and then, hopefully, to my entire school.

Who doesn't love building and creating? The best part is that students can choose what they would like to create according to their interests with all these wonderful materials. Let's give these amazing students a chance to see their creativity in action!
