My Students

I am looking forward to starting my 23rd year of teaching and meeting my new students in September! Creating an environment where students can work collaboratively while developing the skills that will help them to succeed in the 21st century is my focus.

My goal is to facilitate learning while building the students' confidence.

Guiding them to find academic success while helping each child to develop social skills to help them interact with others is the rewarding part of my day. I encourage them to take responsibility for learning. My greatest pleasure is watching the students reflect on their own growth mindset. Each child has strengths and areas to improve upon. The classroom environment encourages each student to have choices and varied materials to access content. Providing a variety of ways to learn the content and options for how to demonstrate an understanding of the standards has proven successful while increasing student academic confidence!

My Project

The Think Fun STEM activities and Super Science challenges will help to promote collaboration and to develop problem solving during group work. These award-winning games will stretch their minds and empower the students to work together.

The Think Fun Logic Games and STEM activities will offer hands-on learning while improving communication and group work skills.

The students will develop a love for learning while developing life-long skills. The children will learn that it is okay to struggle when problem solving and to take risks in exploring their solutions. The STEM tasks are motivating, engaging, and real life inspired!
