My Students

Bright colored murals, beautiful garb, fresh fruits ​, and vegetables at the corner market, and the smell of delicious Indian food coming from the nearby kitchen; this is the environment my students live in.

We have a beautiful neighborhood that embodies the Indian culture.

Unfortunately, my school is in a low-income neighborhood. Many of my students, a diverse mix of cultures too, attend a school that strives to give these eager students who are ready to learn, an excellent education. Many of them are first-generation Americans and are excited to begin school.

My Project

Implementing STEM bins and activities into my classroom is something I continue to work on. STEM has become a staple/ routine in many classrooms. Along with stem bins, my kiddos would benefit from a STEM library. These books would make a great addition to our stem center.

Stem literature is an awesome way to have kids read about how to build and making something, learning about structures or reading about a character's experience with problem-solving.

When my kiddos aren’t working with a stem bin they could be reading and learning. These bins would help make these books easily available and organized in our stem center! What a great way to get kiddos excited to build and create!
