My Students

I teach in a Title I school in Northern California. We are located in a rural community within the foothills. My students come from low-income families that are faced with challenges both in the classroom and outside of the classroom.

My first graders are energetic, full of curiosity, and love to learn.

They love to move and use hands-on learning to help them process new concepts. I set up a safe and supportive classroom that welcomes different types of learning.

My Project

I will be writing a series of furniture projects to transform my classroom. I am having students learn through STEAM, which is an educational approach to learning. This will promote learning through Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. Working as a team teaches students how to communicate, listen, manage, allocate, and peer teach. It teaches them the fundamental skills associated with working within a group towards a common goal. It teaches them the fundamental skills associated with working within a group towards a common goal.

These tables will help me introduce my students to STEAM learning at a young age, and encourage them by guiding them through student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

These trapezoid tables will help my students achieve a well-rounded education, by learning through STEAM. The more opportunities we can give to our students the more successful we can make them in working towards the 21st century learning; ensuring children have the knowledge and skills to be successful in the modern workforce.
