My Students

I am the lucky 3rd grade teacher to be working with 15 unique students who bring energy and their love of learning to class each day. I work with students of all abilities and backgrounds which makes our learning environment a "family".

The learning and growing happens each day in 3rd grade at a rapid rate.

My goal is to give each student an opportunity to thrive throughout the year and leave 3rd grade more confident in themselves as learners and people.

My Project

These fun and engaging materials will be used to assist, enhance, and make learning for our students exciting.

We plan to use the STEM materials to enhance our curriculum across all subject areas through projects and STEM challenges.

We will use the indoor recess materials to keep the students busy while having fun. We want students to be able to enjoy themselves while spending time inside during the days of bad weather. Allowing students the opportunity for hands-on learning, will lend itself to empower critical thinkers and encourage creativity. Challenged and engaged students are happy students! We thank you in advance for your support!
