My Students

My students love to learn and are excited to come to school, even if they do not have all the resources they wish to have at their finger tips. Their constant excitement to learn new things makes teaching them a pure pleasure!

My students love to move, sing, play instruments, and create art every single day and they always love to learn new things!

The students at my school are highly engaged in the Arts throughout their classes every day. It is apparent when you look at my students, that being a Title I school does not prohibit my students from being engaged and wanting to learn through the Arts.

My Project

By funding this project you are giving all the students at my school the chance to design, create, and problem solve. Whether students are designing structures with magnets to solve problems [The Ultimate Fort Builder and Clear-View Marble Run] or using mini-robots [four Spheros] to write code, all of these items will give all students a chance to grow as learners and creators.

Giving students the opportunity to learn through hands on, creative opportunities is vital for our world.

Your donation will encourage my students to look at the world around us in a way that makes them ask questions and grow to be problem solvers, key skills for all people in our world today!
