My Students

My students are hard workers and love to learn. They are problem solvers and team players. My students inspire me each and every day to be a better teacher by better educating them.

My students are challenged on a daily basis and continue working hard with a growth mindset.

They may not understand it yet, but they will get it. They come from hardworking, middle class families. Their families provide them with the very best they have but at times, it's not enough.

My Project

We do makerspace at my school and the students love to build and create. I like to have a wide variety of different choices for them to pick from and try out. This helps stimulate children's natural curiosity to explore and learn. They will also use the LEGO sets to explore and make simple machines in science class.

The LEGO STEM sets provide the engaging, hands-on experiences students need to explore core STEM concepts and link them to real-life phenomenon.

Solutions grow with students as they problem-solve and discover how science, technology, engineering, and math affect their everyday life. Where will their imaginations take them? They can turn a handful of LEGO bricks into absolutely anything!
