My Students

This year, my district has initiated a STEM program within 7th grade classrooms. As a 7th grade STEM ELA teacher, my year began on the wrong foot when my school was damaged due to Hurricane Harvey. My school is recognized as a Title I school, which means that most of the students I service come from low socioeconomic families.

Many of my students have lost their homes and worry about what the future holds for them since the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

I want school, in particular, my classroom, to be seen as a safe learning environment since their world is currently turned upside down.

This year, both my students and I have been sharing a classroom with our sister school. The students in my class are eager to learn. They love to participate, and any opportunity they get to share what they have learned with their peers, makes them excited. This is the first year that we have added a STEM academy to our district. However, the damage left behind by Hurricane Harvey have taken away some of my teacher resources that are needed to effectively run my class.

My Project

My students are beginning a project-based learning regarding the writing process. My students will in turn begin writing about professional STEM careers that they would like to pursue post-graduation. My students will then draw the symbol that represents their chosen career.

In a collaborative team effort, my students will be grouped in fours in order to paint a new logo that represents a combination of professional careers chosen by the group!

The tripod easel, acrylic paints, and the blank canvases will allow my students to include the "A", within STEAM, Science, Technology, Engineer, Arts, and Mathematics throughout their literacy PBL's.
