My Students

My students are the brightest around! They are inquisitive and always eager to learn! They love to create projects and learn through hands-on experiences.

I have a very diverse population, which I love!

This makes learning for everyone different than most surrounding schools. We celebrate different diversities, cultures, and traditions. Many of the cultures at my school are very hands-on learners!

Recently we became a STEAM school of America. We are excited to incorporate all aspects of learning into our projects.

My Project

Staying organized and on task is the key to making good choices in class. As a teacher it is my job to teach my students life skills. I want to equip my students with the math and organizational skills to make it in the world today.

Math really matters!

Giving my students every opportunity is critical for their learning. Having and using manipulatives is the key to this success! By giving you will allow my students to experience math in an organized classroom. The diversity of my class lends itself nicely to group work and independent learning. With manipulates and tools they will be successful!
