My Students

Our school has some of the most dedicated and creative students in Utah. These students come from over a dozen countries and speak many languages.

Our school is committed to teaching the whole child in order to reach academic and personal success.

I am always looking for ways to enhance education for all my students. Living in the second driest state in our country I also want to be sure my students have access to basic supplies to ensure their health and comfort in the classroom.

My Project

Learning is a dynamic process. Allowing students to move their bodies is an effective method for learning. Also, we should have beautiful outdoor areas for classes to meet. While I have outdoor desks, additional materials are needed to complete the outdoor classroom.

An outdoor classroom will allow for greater learning and greater physical health, all while enjoying the Rocky Mountains.

These resources would allow me to teach my students outside, whenever the weather permits. Also, being outside allows for alleviation from Covid concerns since we can enjoy the natural ventilation.
