My Students

We are an elementary school with over 700 students. Our students range from grades K to 5 with various needs and interests. We offer a traditional curriculum full of wonder, exploration, and inquiry.

Our students come to school every day excited about learning.

This is due to positive, innovative, and forward-thinking mindset of our teachers which is passed on to our students. Our students are offered a multitude of programs such as STEM club, Art Club, and Yearbook Club to fit the needs of all students.

My Project

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics encompass us every day! I am hoping to ignite a passion in my students by giving them the opportunity to explore these disciplines. Ultimately I want them to use what they learn to propel them to find their drive and future career.

Gains in 21st century skills such as communication, teamwork, problem solving and analytical skills are a immense benefit as well.

These skills will keep students competitive in a fast paced, ever changing world while helping them to better understand classroom curriculum in the here and now. Creating STEM opportunities in my classroom will impact students in immeasurable ways.
