My Students

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and socio-economic status. We have a wide range of abilities from Pre-K through 5th grade. Some of our students have physical disabilities and we make all our students feel included.

All the teachers here want what is best for our students, physically, emotionally, and educationally.

This desire to see them excel spreads outside the classroom to what they do while in Art/Music/PE, and lunch/recess. Would be so kind as to help us to help our students reach their potential?

My Project

Pathwords and Rush Hour Jr are great games to help teach students how to problem solve and think critically. I'd like to increase the critical thinking skills of students in the entire building by being able to share these wonderful games with other classes. Right now, I only have one of each for my classroom. I've told other teachers about the fun that we have using them and want to share them.

Pathwords and Rush Hour Jr can be used with grades K-5 and can teach skills in an engaging way to help our students "own" critical thinking and problem solving skills.

In today's world, you have to be able to problem solve and think "outside the box". Please help us teach this important life skills at an early age.
