My Students

Our school is considered a Title I school. Many of the children live in low-income housing, hotels, and some are even in shelters. For some, English is their second language and some have experience traumatic experiences that most of us can hardly comprehend. Some have special needs and each and every student at our school qualifies for free breakfast and free lunch. With that being said, they all love to come to school and want to learn. They deserve all the resources we can give them.

My amazing students are funny, smart, sweet, little 5- and 6-year-old children who come to school every day, craving knowledge.

These kiddos come in the door ready to learn and have fun. They will laugh, cry, hug, giggle, play, and learn all in one place: their classroom. Therefore, I am eager and ready to help each of them achieve their dreams.

My Project

These wonderful LEGO® bricks will inspire a child's natural curiosity to explore and learn together while having a blast. Included in these kits are 1000’s of different size blocks that allows the kids to use their imagination and create figures or buildings or whatever their little minds can think of! They will develop fine motor skills all while having fun.

I mean seriously, what child do YOU know that would rather do worksheets when they could be playing…I mean learning, with LEGOS??

Who knows where their imaginations will take them! A handful of LEGO® bricks can be a work of art, a memory, a fantasy, or a complete story. At least two mornings a week, I plan to use these kits during morning work as STEM bins placed on their tables when they arrive. This will be a great way to get their minds creating together, yet start their day in a fun interactive way.
