My Students

Welcome to the FES Train, where a lack of supplies causes chest pain! Don't get me wrong; our school is the best, and in the lives of our students our teachers invest. I teach my students that learning is power and I do all I can every little hour.

In my class I teach mostly reading and always make sure my students are succeeding!

But there are many things that can stress students out, from learning a language to personal doubt. My job isn't only to show them and teach. I let them know all the goals they can reach. With your donation there is no doubt, the best in my students you will help me bring out!

I teach two classes of marvelous students. They are a hard working bunch and really do their best. This year I am teaching the EFL classes (Extended Foreign Language). They strive with hands on activities!

My Project

This stem / steam project will benefit all of our third grade students. Last year as our steam activity we did a beautiful garden. It needs a student's touch. We want to make it feel welcoming with the hands of the children. This year we decided to use rock art to decorate and create. In addition to creating their individual kindness rock, they will also use them as markers for our vegetables and herbs.

First, each student will create a rock to reflect their individuality.

They will use the rocks to show what is great and special about them. In the process, they will plan out the message they want to send to fellow students. These kindness rocks will add color and will beautify our school. In addition, we will use any remaining rocks as markers for the vegetables and herbs that are growing in our garden. This would be a culminating activity to help our stem and steam project come to life!
