My Students

As B.B. King once said, "The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it from you." My sixth grade students are showered every day with reminders that their learning is important and matters.

Regardless of the challenges they face, my students are a group of enthusiastic learners eager to be challenged with new information.

My students do not complain about not having an abundance of resources at their fingertips. As their teacher, my goal is to provide them with continued learning in school and in their homes. My students inspire me to create ample learning opportunities. They shine with the desire to learn and have inquisitive minds asking for more information.

My Project

I am interested in getting all my students interested in science and exposed to STEM activities. It is difficult to to get students interested with only text books.

Giving my students ample opportunities with hands on STEM projects will open their eyes to possible future careers in the field of science.

Learning about cells is fun and interesting. Through STEM hands on projects students learn in abundance. However what makes it more engaging and fun for the students is the use of microscopes to see for yourself what a human cell and a plant cell look like. My students learn about environmental science with the robots my students can have a culminating activity to present their learning.
