My Students

My classroom is a diverse place, where we all share a common love and passion—learning! We are always looking for the next challenge and what more we can learn. Classrooms are not always equipped with all the necessary objects and devices for learning in the 21st century. Forever wanting the best for all of my students, I want to make my classroom the most enriching and exciting environment I possibly can.

I have a bright, talented and fun bunch of fourth-grade students.

My Project

The future of the world needs strong thinkers. With these supplies, my students would be able to expand their minds to build, create, innovate, and problem solve. Magnatiles will get the students thinking about construction in the future. Masterminds is such a wonderful novel that gets students involved in 21st century thinking. The characters in the book are actual students on a mission using STEM to discover the truth about their past and their hometown. A class set of rulers will allow us to freely explore mathematics and engineering. The Bose speaker will allow the students to engage with the audio of Masterminds and great audio for technology projects and presentations.
