My Students

My students are innovative thinkers, with a strong sense of collaboration and creativity. They need choice and voice in regards to their learning environment, as well as validation that they are individuals worthy of belonging to their classroom and their community. As developing individuals, they seek out opportunities to serve, as guided by those adults in their lives. These service opportunities provide real-life experiences which connect them to the community in which they live.

As learners, my students thrive in an environment where project-based learning is at the forefront.

This project- based learning is vital to their success as 21st century collaborators. If learning is not relative to their lives and core beliefs, they will not transfer or apply that knowledge to the world around them.

My Project

Recently I chose to make a change as an educator to a Tile I School where more than 82% of our students are low-income. Many of our students have experienced multiple life traumas. These life traumas inhibit their ability to feel trusted, safe, and able to learn. In addition to this, the majority of my students have not been afforded avenues which would heighten the learning modalities of a child. In summary, my students are in need of opportunities for STEM project-based learning, critical problem-solving strategies, and other 21st century initiatives.

By donating to DonorsChoose.org, my students will be given the opportunity to explore, create, and connect with the world in which they live through STEAM, critical thinking skills, and project-based learning.

Purchases will be used to enhance student-led designs and cross-cutting concept central to the Utah Core Standards of Social Studies 4.1-4.3. Students will design their own cities, mass transit systems, and build models of both train and wagon wheels as they analyze how human actions modify their physical environments. Students will also compare experiences faced by previous Utah immigrants with refugees of today from their own families and friends. Real-life experiences include public safety, communications, and transportation.
