My Students

My students are Gifted and Talented. They are over achievers that like to excel in every aspects and as much as possible. They really enjoy doing projects and being able to present their end products as an accomplishment.

Most importantly, they are all eager to learn and improve themselves through out the school year.

My students will always do the best to gain more knowledge, be able to express themselves through creativity, and verbally explain themselves along with their end-products in depth.

My Project

The students will be inventing and building a product to sell for their company. The product can be a technology tool that they feel will benefit the people in today society. At the end, in order for them to sell their products the students need to make a PowerPoint and be able to present their company's product visually and verbally.

With the projector in the classroom it will help the students accomplish this goal of what it will takes to be an inventor and a presenter.

I hope giving this opportunity for the students will give them more engagement in creating a special product that they want to have. Also, having the chance to be heard from others and being able express their idea can really help build self-esteem.
