My Students

I teach 3rd-5th-grade students who are mostly from low-income families. The support and love they get from school really make a difference in their lives. We try to teach them to be good citizens and grow into hard working adults that will contribute to society.

They come to school excited to learn and we want to foster that love for learning to help them grow.

I want to give them opportunities they might not ever receive if we did not have support from the outside world. Thank you!

My Project

The EiE kits are excellent inquiry-based STEM curriculum, teaching students thinking and reasoning skills needed for success. Built around the engineering design process, EiE teaches kids how to solve problems systematically. My students are smart and creative students who want to experiment and design things on their own.

This kit will allow my students the opportunity to show the skills they have developed in Science, Math, Technology and Engineering.

Engineering Bubble Wands will let the students use their imagination and tools they have learned to create and develop Bubble Wands. They are so excited to start this project and I know they are full of possibilities!
