My Students

Our school is a wonderful neighborhood school and a true community of friends, teachers, and family. Teachers enjoy working with students and peers. They create a warm and welcoming environment.

Our students are active learners.

They enjoy doing and creating, often by working in collaborative teams. They are innovators and work on 21st-century problem-solving skills daily. The enthusiasm they bring to school is evident by their warm and engaging interaction with all staff members and teachers. They continually seek ways they can help and assist our community. It is a true joy to see them strive to exceed expectations!

My Project

As a resource teacher, I collaborate with many teachers and work with many students and classes. We will use the materials to make paper circuits to demonstrate and 'illuminate' our knowledge of not only electricity and circuits but as a tool to express our creativity!

Fabricate, illuminate and communicate will be our motto as we demonstrate our knowledge and use our imagination!

Paper circuits are the perfect tools to create stories, design games, and promote collaboration among my students. We will use the materials to tap our inner artist! The opportunities to empower students while reviewing the scientific properties of electricity and circuits are endless!
