My Students

I love the fact that my students come from all over the world and from all different backgrounds. I have military students, special education students, students who are new to the state and even new to the country learning English for the first time. I have many students from the Philippines, Vietnam, China, Iran, Korea, and Russia, sprinkled with kids who have been here since Kindergarten.

Our school has been designated a Title I school in the past because many students receive a free lunch for different socioeconomic reasons.

All of my students are eager to learn new things and look forward to coming to school every day. I have a very low absence rate in my classroom.

My Project

We are creating a makerspace in the classroom for third grade students. This project will help students with engineering skills and help build on concepts taught during our common core science lessons. Students benefit from early STEM activities that will give them the confidence to pursue science and engineering later on in life. The materials that I choose will help my students practice the lessons that I have taught this year and can be used with next year’s third grade class and future classes as well. Eventually we are going to create a school wide makerspace for children.
