My Students

The program I facilitate is comprised of approximately 50 enthusiastic students grades 4-6 and provides rigorous academics to all students. My classroom is a place of challenge, creativity, innovation, and discovery.

Throughout the school year, students meet during lunch recess, to work collaboratively on hands- STEM challenges.

Students in this program are given the opportunity to foster their creativity, as they discover various tools and incorporating the 4 C's for 21st-century education: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

My amazing 4th/5th/6th grade students are very inquisitive, eager to learn, and truly work hard every day!

My Project

Students will use the 4 C's for 21st-century education: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity to design a mosaic. Students will replicate a work of art by using 100 Rubik’s Cubes to create a mosaics.

Students will enjoy this authentic learning opportunity incorporating geometry, art, and the 4 C’s: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

Students will learn how to solve the corners of the upper face of the Rubik’s Cube to a given pattern... Students will apply many skills and practice memorizing algorithms to create a 100 Rubik’s cube mosaic. Students will enjoy learning to solve the puzzle and solving for speed, in addition to competing at a school-wide assembly to fine-tune their performance skills.
