My Students

I teach at a Title I school serving a large population of low income students. I have the privilege of teaching four year old pre-kindergarten scholars; the largest grade level on site. My students are creative, eager to learn, and full of curiosity.

I love that each day provides a new opportunity to learn with investigation and hands on experiences as science, technology, engineering, and math come together to solve real world problems in an early childhood classroom.

My students often work collaboratively in small groups which encourages creating problem solving skills and further developing critical thinking within the classroom.

My Project

Stem “Fun”dations targets to foster hands on experiences as science, technology, engineering, and math come together to solve real world problems in an early childhood classroom. This is done with challenges based upon the lives and experiences of these young learners.

When young scholars are given the opportunity to discover, explore, and solve challenging problems they are developing critical thinking and problem solving skills.The STEM Kits that I am requesting already match stories and science concepts that we discuss in class like "The 3 Little Pigs." But these kits encourage the students to look at story problems and create their own solutions using said materials.

The students would also be working cooperatively in small groups and learning how to share both materials and responsibilities within a group in order to solve a common problem. All of the aforementioned skills are necessary in the successful continued educational experience.
