My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and enthusiastic learners who are always looking to challenge themselves. Our school is nestled in a tight-knit community that is driven upon our student's successes, both in and out of school. Our school's sense of community is exceptional, as students, families, and staff are constantly showing school pride.

My students are always willing to go the extra mile when working to meet a goal- creative, thoughtful, and enthusiastic only begin to describe their character.

The methods in which my students learn best differ greatly. In our classroom, we utilize a variety of seating options and learning strategies to ensure that each student's individual needs are met.

My Project

With the growing importance of STEM in the primary classroom, these materials will allow my students to experience STEM-based centers in which all of my students can extend their creativity through hands-on learning experiences. Students will become exposed to using materials such as gears and circuits, and will use teamwork to build in groups.

My students' inventiveness is beyond what one would expect of a 3rd grader- they are bright, creative, and apply imagination to every aspect of our school day.

These tools relate to a variety of scientific focuses, such as force, motion, and energy. Students can apply mathematics to their work and will use communication skills when working with peers. These materials will support the growth of my students’ logical thinking and expand their understanding of engineering objectives. Students will use these during instructional time, but will also have time to use them during “free play” and indoor recess.
