My Students

I am a second year teacher at a Title I school in Aiken County, South Carolina. I have fifteen wonderful first graders.

I strongly believe that my students can and will accomplish anything that they set their minds to.

As a teacher it is my responsibility to educate them not only in standards-based content, but it is also my job to help them grow into aspiring individuals, aid them in discovering what they are passionate about, and prepare them for whatever life throws at them. I have no doubt that my students will change the world.

My Project

As of recent, our class has been told that we will return to face-to-face learning, however, many safety precautions will be set in place to help avoid the potential of spreading germs among students. One of the many precautions our district is taking, is not allowing shared supplies among students.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed how we are able to approach STEAM based learning within the classroom.

Typically, during "STEAM centers" our students would have the opportunity to engage with peers and work together to build and explore different material. Because of the current safety precautions being put in place due to COVID-19, our students will have to maintain proper social distance and will not be able to share the material kept in our STEAM centers. Unfortunately, our classroom does not currently have enough STEAM material for each student to have their own "center".

Your donation to our class project would make a huge difference in our classroom! By donating, you are providing the opportunity for students to engage in STEAM based learning despite our current lack of supplies and the restrictions that have been put in place.
