My Students

My class is composed of 17 enthusiastic learners. While we are in a small rural school in upstate New York, BIG learning takes place in our classroom.

I am lucky enough to teach students that are motivated and eager to learn new things.

I wish to continue to develop their love of learning by making academics fun and engaging. I hope to create an environment that is comfortable, collaborative, and innovative. It is the goal to make the classroom "our happy place."

My Project

Students will be using STEAM bins for team building, as a "calm down" activity, for positive reinforcement of behavior, for Makerspace Mondays, and more.

I will introduce the engineer design process through these STEAM bins, and watch as my students' creativity takes flight.

It is important to integrate STEAM activities into classroom learning, because the disciplines of STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math - are used in completing everyday activities.

STEAM practice allows students to problem solve, think analytically, and to be imaginative.

It is essential that I expose my students to STEAM and STEAM-building materials in order to prepare them with the necessary skills to be a citizen in today's modern world.
