My Students

Most of our students come from a low income, rural community with its roots in agriculture. We are not a large district, but when you have only one middle school and one high school in your district, we do have a lot of students at our sites.

Our students are vastly diverse and unique, but we all have one thing in common: we are Sanger proud.

Our sixth grade students are proud Braves and Chiefs that become proud Warriors in seventh and eighth grades, who in turn, become proud Apaches in high school. We have a proud lineage and our students show their pride every day.

My Project

Let's bring STEM into the classroom with Snap Circuits. We will use the Snap Circuit kits in collaborative groups. Students will experience hands-on learning and experimentation by building circuits and learning about motors, switches, resistors, transistors, and more.

We want to bring Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into the classroom in an engaging and exciting way!

Snap circuits will allow us to do that. Hundreds of projects will allow my students to explore many different concepts while the variety of components will allow them to experiment on their own. Students will hypothesize and predict what will happen and then experiment to find out if they were correct.
