My Students

I teach kindergarten all the way through grade 5. The students I teach come from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. They are inquisitive, active, and love to engage in new experiences. They are learning life skills like how to plan a project and see it through to the end. Our students are especially excited when they are presented with hands-on learning opportunities.

We would like to provide our students with more hands-on, problem solving opportunities in the classroom that they don't get outside of school.

Every child in the school will be able to benefit from this project.

My Project

I have an amazing school of students that are itching for some outdoor education. I would like to provide my students with a small Minnesota native plant garden near the playground of the school. We are lucky enough to have a bench and a small area that we are able to expand into a learning environment for the kids.

Creating a Minnesota native plant garden within the playground area will give students an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature while at school.

The students will also be using this garden as a learning experience. They will plan the garden, research plants, and create the garden. After the garden is in full swing, all of the students at the school will be able to use the garden to extend their science education and bring the classroom outdoors!
