My Students

Teaching at a STEM school is both a challenge and exciting adventure everyday! Our 5th grade students are excited about learning content by taking on STEM careers in a quest to design their own learning goals and make a difference in the world. Motivated, excited, hands-on learners are just a few words to describe the amazing group of kids in our classrooms this year.

STEM students are willing to take chances in the classroom, and we are hoping you will take a chance on us!

My Project

My 5th graders work hard all day long and they deserve a break! Our school has outgrown the playground so, several times a week we are on the bus parking lot with little to nothing to do!

Kickball, basketball, and jump rope all things you remember about elementary school.

Help my kids make those same memories by helping us get some equipment for recess. With spring around the corner we would love to set up some team games for students to get outside and get moving throughout the school day. Just for a little while, let's put the Chromebook away and play!
