My Students

I teach Gifted and Talented enrichment classes for four different schools, in the grades first through fifth.Some of my students are non-English speakers, but their love for learning is apparent. My classes consist of learners from various socioeconomic statuses. Most of my students are diverse learners who are very excited about their enrichment class, where we can do hands-on activities in addition to the monotone intervention and repetition that usually takes place in the regular classrooms. This is usually the only time where they are allowed to be creative, think outside the box and develop their talents.

My students do not always come from homes where they are told that their futures are bright and they can become anything they choose.

It is my mission to educate them about all the possibilities that await them and to nurture their talents.

My Project

"Through playing with Lego children learn how to share and take turns. When working together on Lego construction, children have to agree on the general idea of their play – is it a castle, a boat or a spaceship? Children have to follow each other’s lead and begin to understand how different ideas can contribute and extend their play. Children also have to learn to negotiate roles and responsibilities in order to have an enjoyable social experience." Lego Education

It is my personal belief that not only will Lego build important Social and Emotional skills but it will also offer my students experiences where they can be creative and grow their minds.

My students will develop a form of non-verbal intelligence that is crucial for achievement in many STEM fields when using the STEAM Park Lego Kits. They will develop their ability to visualize three-dimensional objects through structured block play, when my students try to recreate a construction by consulting a model or blueprint. My students will have to analyze what they see, perceive the parts that make up the whole, and figure out how the parts relate to each other. To be really successful, they may also need to think quantitatively -- to count all important Math skills.
