My Students

My students are students at a Title I school in New Carrollton, Maryland. They love engaging in hands-on and active learning experience. Their creativity inspires me, as well as their passion and dedication to learning. My students have a tenacity that they put towards never giving up and doing their best. Their energy is contagious and makes going to work each and every day a treat! I love being their teacher and I hope to bring learn and grow to make myself the best teacher I can for them!

My Project

I have the opportunity to learn from the best and collaborate with educators across the country while learning how to implement Makerspace with my students. Engaging them in design and innovation! I will be spending a week learning and creating lessons that implement the makerspace movement within the classroom.

I plan on bring the makerspace movement into first grade and expose my students to a new and hands-on way to learn.

I hope to not only bring this learning to my students but also share what I have learned with my colleagues! I can't wait to bring home what I have learned and implement it with my students!
