My Students

My students are the best! They are from Massachusetts and attend a small neighborhood elementary school. The school that they attend is located in a district that receives Title I funding. Title I funding is received from the state based on the socioeconomic needs of many of our students. Our student population is extremely diverse and our students have a lot to offer. In the past two or three years, there has been a large influx of ELL students in our district. These students bring with them amazing experiences, interesting cultures, and the tenacity to achieve success. Any funding would be greatly appreciated to help make our students' learning experience the best it can be.

My Project

My students look forward to STEM lessons each week on Friday afternoon. They have fun working together to solve real-world problems in creative ways. I would love to incorporate more STEM lessons into their entire week! STEM (which stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) is great because students learn to apply the lessons from these subjects using problem solving and critical thinking skills. These types of activities are so important for students today because they set the foundation for success in so many in-demand careers. My students need a Lakeshore Learning STEM bundle and design and building engineering centers. The STEM materials I've requested in this project will help 18 students obtain the real-world experience that they need for future career success!
