My Students

My students love to learn! They love to move and are excited to find out about our world. They are inquisitive and have many interests that continue to push their thinking. As a class, we work on encouraging each other to focus on our strengths which in turn builds confidence in all that we do.

About 76% of our students are on free and reduced lunch.

We live in a suburb of Detroit. We are a school wide Title 1 building. I have 5 special education students and others who are below grade level. In our classroom we learn, laugh and love!

My Project

The Osmo interactive problem solving apps will allow students to work on critical thinking skills. This product will develop skills that today’s employers are looking for. It will increase collaborative, critical and creative thinking while providing an opportunity to think outside of the box. Students will be able to use Osmo to develop number sense, phonetics and begin the critical thinking skill of coding. Education is changing. We need to find ways to reach children other than pen and paper tasks. These Osmo applications will allow groups of children to work on skills that are most important for their future learning.
