My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with challenges each and every day. Despite the rural setting, I am looking to make my STEM curriculum innovative and exciting to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences in my classroom.

Each day, my students buy into the motto that a great attitude will become a great day.

My students are curious about STEM. They love hands-on, innovative learning experiences. I want to give them learning experiences that will last a lifetime.

Each day, my students arrive looking for something different, something new, and something to lift their hopes. I want my classroom to be the place that gives them just that.

My Project

To me, there's nothing better than a great book, unless it's a great STEM book! Imagine - students reading about science, technology, engineering, and math for the fun of it and not just because their teacher told them to!

STEM has picked up lots of momentum at our school recently.

Just this year, we started a STEM specials class where students will learn about the engineering design process, computer science, and much more! I want to keep that momentum going by creating a STEM station in our library. I think students will be excited to continue learning about STEM subjects, even after they leave STEM class.
