My Students

At our school, the 120 technology savvy kindergarten through fifth grade students are engaged in their limitless education.

They are challenged not only in typical curriculum but also in special out-of-the-box classes like robotics, martial arts, sewing, cooking, etc.

Our community is incorporated in these classes through parent volunteers teaching about their hobbies and community workers such as police and a sensei.

Students take pride working in our community garden with peers, parents, teachers, and a local professor. They learn real life skills in our growing MakerSpace such as carpentry, sewing, and problem solving.

Students are thriving and continue to push themselves in this high poverty area. They are leaders, collaborators, and our future.

My Project

Having a set of four lockable boxes and various locks will allow for a different learning structure in the Library Media Room at our school. Students will learn cooperation, critical thinking, problem solving, and various school subject knowledge as they complete the escape room/breakout lesson. Students will be encouraged to read and follow directions to reach an end goal. This kind of activity has students focusing on small details.

Students will engage their whole brain creating an active learner with these multi-stage lessons.

We want to bring our escape room/break out lesson to the next level. We are asking for a set of four to allow our students to work in smaller groups cooperatively.
