My Students

Students in my class are self-starters and dedicated to their own academic successes. They are strong, capable learners; however, they have yet to reach the pinnacle of success. In order to learn and make the most academic gains, they must fail and try again - which is a difficult process for individuals of any given age.

At eight and nine years old, they are just now beginning to embrace their abilities and push themselves - and are approaching a breakthrough point in their educational journey.

They are prepared to cross the threshold to a larger and more rigorous educational realm, yet sometimes their focus sways and their attention drifts.

My Project

Have you ever wondered what makes a robot go? Many of my students have wondered the same thing and would love to explore machines using LEGO Simple and Powered Machines Sets.

This will promote students' fundamental STEM understanding of simple and powered machines, structures, and mechanisms.

This type of learning will help today's kids become tomorrow's innovators. STEM education is more important than ever in our ever-evolving world of technology. For kids to become comfortable with innovating, they must first understand the basics of how things work. This set along with our science curriculum will make our students become more aware of the world around them and how it works.
