My Students

I am sure you’ve all heard the infamous quote “The future of the world is in my classroom today!”, but really…my students are our future! Rest assured, I think we will be in good hands with the little humans in my room today who are full of energy, outside the box thinking, creativity, and a growth mindset that helps prepare them for tasks that may not always come easy.

My classroom is full of students who will be future engineers, teachers, doctors, scientists, authors, mathematicians and so much more!

They thrive off hands-on-learning and activities that stretch their imaginations to endless limits.

Our classroom is a safe haven where we foster the environment of trial and error, learning through our mistakes, and knowing that giving up isn’t an option. We are a team, a family, a unit and throughout the year we will work together while still encouraging each student to be unique and fearless as they try new things. I couldn’t be more blessed to be the educator of these future leaders.

My Project

This Maker Space station will be a place where students are encouraged to use their imagination, planning skills and areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and even arts & craft skills (STEM or STEAM) to make their ideas come to life.

I want my second graders to have the opportunity to learn in ways besides using a paper and pencil!

I want them to learn to use as many skills as possible throughout their day & be exposed to a way of learning that taps into all parts of their brain, despite the kind of learner they may be.This way of learning will target auditory, visual, reading/writing, and kinesthetic learners all while touching on all content areas!
