My Students

Everyday, second grade children enter rooms full of learning opportunities. It is their time to learn and prepare for a future of service, success, and leadership. 2nd graders are full of ideas and need opportunities to create and problem solve. Our future will be positively impacted by the abilities of people who are able to find answers and solutions to the numerous problems our society faces. My students are part of that future and maybe the ones to change the world.

My students are kind, loving, creative, curious, and very professional second graders.

They come from various backgrounds, but together we have created a school family where everyone feels safe and loved. Our school works hard to provide a fun and positive learning environment where everyone contributes and belongs. The students enjoy coming to school, and the attendance percentage is high due to the positive environment. Teachers at this school love the students and love what they do.

My Project

STEM kits are great for encouraging children to use their creative and ideas to solve problems. Architect designs kits, LEGO and ZOOB building projects, and other problem solving challenges provide opportunities for students to collaborate, use critical thinking, and communicate with peers to solve problems. The United States of America is lacking adults who are able to face difficult challenges and solve problems. Children tend to give up when facing tough challenges. STEM kits allow them to create and learn how things work and how problems can be solved. They are given the opportunity to learn through engaging, hands on experiences. Learning becomes fun and students find joy in the their education.
