My Students

My class is a fun, outgoing, curious group of 8- and 9-year-olds. Each one of my students has their unique strengths and differences. They love to learn, explore, use technology, and ask questions. Our goal is to encourage innovators, creators, and individuals that will change this world!

Each student in my class is unique and learns differently from the next.

I have an amazing group of students that are so excited to come to school. They come in each day with a smile and an attitude that is ready to learn!

My Project

My classroom is full of kids that learn different ways. I would love to try to create an environment that encourages these different ways to think.

We would like to incorporate flexible thinking, escape room activities, and more organization.

These things allow kids to use their differences to help them learn. In our classroom we love to learn in fun and exciting ways. By having escape room activities all kids can be engaged in the activity. 100% of the kids participating= 100% learning! Having more organization allows students to be able to find and access items in our classroom easier.
