My Students

Our elementary school serves a diverse group of students that are hungry for new experiences. When you walk the hallways of our school, you will see smiling faces and a tapestry of culture. We are a Title I school, and while many of our students come from low-income families, I do not want that to be what people see or remember about our inquisitive students who, over and over again, handle adversity with grace. I want everyone to recognize how our students rise to any and every occasion with ​grit and determination that will soon trail blaze new paths to the future.

Our world faces many issues that do not yet have solutions, but you and I have the opportunity to enable the creativity of this young generation to help find them!

Since you are on this page, I am confident that you too believe that the next generation can be game-changers. The tagline at our school is "every student counts, every moment matters", and I hope you will join me investing into these young minds so they realize that to be true.

My Project

My students have been learning about the Engineering Design Process to solve problems in the world around them. So far, we have practiced the EDP with small projects, but we are now looking to broaden our horizons by tackling a much larger project.

Going to Lake Marion and participating in this field-study will give my students an introduction to environmental science and give them experience using the engineering design process on a bigger scale.

This immersive experience will be completely different than any other field trip they have experienced in the past and will put STEM and Innovation at the forefront of our curriculum.

Ms. Andino
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
