My Students

My first-grade students are eager to learn new ways to excel. I love to watch them gain the knowledge to be successful. They come from all different types of housing, economics, and backgrounds.

I love the diversity and the experiences they come with.

We use that to create lessons to include everyone. They are a great bunch of kids who are here to learn all they can. The kids are curious learners; they want to learn as much as they can so they can be ready for the next grade and not struggle to get there.

My Project

The students in my class are a special crew. They need to be challenged just a little more than their peers. I want to be able to have the resources necessary to complete this task.

Project Based Learning will give my students the challenge they need to succeed.

If we have the resources needed to give me ideas to teach the kids proper strategies to solve problems they will be successful. Working together with the class or with a peer with help the kids learn how to solve real world problems they can use later in life. Solving problems is important in every stage of life. I want to give them a step up in the right direction to success.
