My Students

My students are an incredibly lively group of third graders that love to learn and work together. We are a Title I school in Mililani, Hawaii where families learn and grow generation after generation.

I teach at an amazing school that is the heart of the local community.

Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 49% of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. Our students are also incredibly diverse in their academics. We continue to strive to improve our students’ academic achievement while also emphasizing the importance of developing good character.

My Project

Play is an extremely important way for students to problem solve and learn collaboration skills. Many people think that upper grades don't need playtime, but I totally disagree! Especially when play can help develop problem solving skills and other soft skills.

Puzzles and building supplies will help students learn to persevere and collaborate.

These supplies will provide students with necessary building materials for our Forces & Motion unit when they are tasked with building a Rube Goldberg Machine.

These incredible supplies will also serve as the foundation of our brand new STEM bins that I plan to introduce next year.
