My Students

In a room surrounded by animals and plants, my students enter our jungle of a classroom engulfed by science. The classroom is designed for exploration through research and learning, via hands-on activities. By the end of the year, I want my students to be at the forefront of a STEM education.

Each student is unique in their own way, which makes learning that much more special.

My students love learning about the ever-changing world of science and are captured by the fact that every day brings new discoveries in science. The school is a welcoming environment that encourages higher-level learning while supporting the students at every step. The school houses over fourteen hundred middle school students, who come from different ethnic backgrounds. In order to strengthen their learning experience, I want my students to utilize all the possible resources I can provide for them.

My Project

My students love exploring science content and I'm always challenging them to create more though their experiences. The world of STEAM/STEM is constantly changing and I want my students to be ready for this world. With Makey Makey kits, my students can engineer their own controllers using the kits and various items.

I never want to limit their creativity and their curiosity is only sparked when students are engaged in a hands-on learning experience.

With the Makey Makey kits, I envision my students using every day items such as a piece of fruit, to create their circuits. There is nothing more important than preparing my young scientists to be college and career ready. The kits will allow them to think beyond what we're learning and drive them to question the realm of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. The goal is to create something and never stop building new ideas on top of the previous.
