My Students

My students attend a Title 1 school with all students receiving free breakfast and lunch daily. They are enrolled in a math magnet class where they visit a math lab every day for 30 minutes to build their love of math.

My kindergartners come to school each and every day eager to learn!

They are curious about the world around them and strive to become productive citizens of their community. Like all 5 and 6 year olds, my students love to come to school and interact each day!

My Project

STEM experiences are so vital to building critical thinking skills, working together, building math and science concepts for young learners and competing in our global society.

My classroom is in need of new materials to help students explore STEM concepts.

The marble run and magna tiles are sure to be a favorite among my students! Their eyes lite up when they create something together!

Developing STEM skills is vital in our ever evolving, technology based society. These materials will help me give my youngest of learners the start at developing those concepts which will enable them to find success in their futures!
