My Students

My students are inquisitive, enthusiastic, and eager to learn! They enjoy learning through creating. Since many of my students do not have access to age-appropriate toys and manipulatives at home, we have created a maker space in the our library!

My Project

A makerspace is a community where students can create, problem solve, and develop skills, talents, thinking, and mental rigor. Making is concerned with learning through creating- not through lecture-style direct instruction. A maker culture is about promoting a sense of competence and mastery. Every student should have the opportunity to create in a place where risk and failure is embraced and shown this is really the first step in learning. At Bayview, all students participate in a variety of makerspace activities throughout the year. They are also incorporated into several enrichment and after-school programs.

Through creative play, Magna-Tiles encourage learning in math, science, and engineering.

Magna-Tiles are shaped tiles with magnets around the edges. Working with these tiles allow the students collaborate with each other, construct, and create anything they can imagine! This will promote active, independent learning and help the students develop skills applicable to future careers.
