My Students

I teach in a high poverty (Title I) K-2 school. Many of the students in my class are working below grade level in reading and/or math. Given the environment my students come from, the odds are already against them. Often, the parents do not have the skills or the tools to help their child succeed.

Many of my students are kinesthetic learners.

It is essential that I find ways to address a unique learning style for my students within my classroom. They find structure, love, and positivity at school. I want them to succeed in not only reading and math, but in all areas.

My Project

Students need a place to show their creativity, and they need items to help their creativity come to life. My Makerspace area is a place where my students can explore their interests; learn to use tools and materials, physical items and technology; and develop creative projects.

Circuit Maze and Bit Coding will provide the opportunity to participate in hands-on, critical thinking activities to prepare our students with critical 21st-century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

Creativity is a skill that can not be taught, so we must allow our students the opportunity to explore, inquire, and create in their own learning space. My goal is to educate my students to become innovators and acknowledge the value of hands-on projects where students have to solve real-world problems and demonstrate mastery.
