My Students

As you approach 5th grade, you hear the buzz of collaboration begin to grow. Students are working together to problem solve, innovate, and explore science as the glow of comprehension spreads across the classroom.

The students in my classroom are 5th-grade students from a Title I school.

They come from all walks of life and create a community of unique and supportive learners. This is important as our school does not have the traditional classroom but open pods that are divided by class. While this means it can sometimes be loud, it also means a community is being built.

My Project

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields are an ever-growing entity. By providing students with meaningful STEM experiences, I hope to prepare students for their future successes. It is essential that students maintain their curiosity and creativity while pairing it with their growing skills of practicality and problem-solving. I want to help students identify things that they cannot solve yet and then work through a way to bring a solution to fruition. In a Title 1 school, students often do not have access to the types of technology and resources that would prepare them for these successes at home. This makes it even more essential that we provide them with these experiences at school.

To achieve their highest potential in this age of technology, my students need greater access to technology that will allow them to explore and create through hands-on experiences.

A Makey Makey is a system based on the idea that everyone is an inventor. Using a series of circuits, students can code and invent anything that they can dream up. I feel that utilizing technology to foster academic growth, creativity, and excitement to help others and grow is essential for my students.
