My Students

Our elementary school is located in the southeastern part of Butler County, Pennsylvania. Our town has grown a lot over the past twenty years. Starting with farms, a few restaurants, a grocery store and a couple of gas stations, it is continuing to grow each day.

My classroom is also growing each and every day‚Äč.

I teach fifty students with different ways of reaching their full potential. Each of my students needs certain adaptations to learn. Some students need privacy or silence in order to concentrate, while others may need to fidget in their seats. Scheduled breaks are needed for some of my students as well. Other students learn best with technology or movement.

Aside from being so very unique and different, my students all have one thing in common: the desire to do their best. Possessing the tools necessary for their individual success is all that is needed.

My Project

My students love problem-solving and collaborating with their peers in our classroom. We would like to add more puzzles and tools to enhance our classroom STEM Bins!

Robots, Puzzles, and STEM materials will help introduce and encourage my students to explore the areas of Industry 4.0.

STEM Bin time instills a love and passion for learning about robotics and engineering at an early age in elementary school. Introducing this to young students promotes continuation of skills in years to come. It is a fun and engaging learning approach to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These additions would improve and enhance our STEM Bin station.
