My Students

My students are special because we have a diverse group of kids that go to school here. Our school demographics have really changed in the last 10 years. Many more of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes as well as non-US natives.

We have had many new students arrive here from Nepal in the past few years.

This has allowed the American born students a chance to learn about new cultures and traditions. My students are incredibly tolerant and empathetic towards the differences within our classroom.

My second graders are brand new to this building. They are coming from a building that only houses Kinder-1st grade. Not only are they coming to a larger building, but they also switch for their classes as well. They have one teacher for Math/Science and one teacher for ELA/SS.

My Project

The masking tape and Crayola crayons will give my students the power to build and create their STEAM activities that are involved in their new Science curriculum.

STEAM activities and teamwork are the basis for our new Science curriculum this year, but many of the materials are supposed to be supplied by the school.

The students have really enjoyed building and creating things like bridges, structures, and toy making kits during science class. These activities have been so hands on and the students have really blossomed in regards to their creative thinking as well as their teamwork. Classroom leaders have emerged and taken charge of many of the building activities. It has been wonderful to watch!
