My Students

I am a teacher of 24 first graders who come from all social economic backgrounds. My students come from a high poverty area. Many students have limited access to books, technology, and basic necessities. Our school is a Title I school, and all students receive free breakfast and lunch. We are Northern Indiana's first STEM school. Our school is dedicated to giving these children the best education possible, and exposing them to as much quality learning as we can. We want every student to be successful in every aspect of learning!

My Project

The products I have selected will inspire, motivate and challenge my students to be engineers, inventors and world changers! There will be an engineering area in the classroom for the students to choose items like these exciting materials and get creating! Students learn best through hands-on learning experiences, so with these items they will be able to imagine, plan, and create. Students will have a chance to constantly brainstorm, invent, and problem solve in ways that have great potential to make our world better. They will also be able to write and draw about their creations and present their ideas to the class.
