My Students

Many of my wonderful students come from the neighborhood around the school but we also get a lot from various neighborhoods around Memphis. All are a delight to teach. We are a Title I school, and the boys and girls represent a diverse population.

I love my position as the school librarian!

I see all students at least once every two weeks, but have a dedicated day for "enrichment" where students can explore and test their curiosity. My kids need more than just books, and you can help.

My Project

I borrowed a circuit suitcase from a local museum(The Pink Palace) this year and my kids LOVED it! They were very disappointed when it had to be returned after a week.

These circuit sets are suitable for small fingers and sturdy enough so that my primary students will learn the basic properties of electricity and electronics.

I want my students to be able to create their own circuits every week in the library in addition to reading about electricity and electronics. An overview of a simple circuit, followed by paired students’ testing of the kits provides insight into the types of circuits and compares the differing properties of series circuits and parallel circuits.

Students will be able to re-create circuits of various functionalities such as shining a light bulb, spinning a motor, or both. They will be able to manipulate these circuits and create their own circuits using the components provided in the snap circuit kits.
