My Students

The kindergarten kids in my class are inquisitive, energetic, and hardworking scholars. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions. It's my goal to create an engaging, positive, and organized classroom environment that helps all students to thrive.

I teach math, science, reading, and social studies at a Title I school in Arlington, Virginia.

In our classroom we incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, project based learning, and flexible seating to ensure each students' needs are met!

My students are active learners, they are scientists, problem solvers, explorers, and creators. I am so lucky to be teaching this amazing group of students!

My Project

This project will open my students’ eyes to the way science, technology, engineering, and math can be engaging and relevant in their everyday life. I will create a STEM corner in my classroom and provide time during our day to engage students in hands-on learning about these fields.

This project will help my students gain skills in leadership, communication, teamwork, and gain hands on experience in the STEM field.

It will push students to be more creative and think outside the box. The Magna-tiles will help students to work as engineers to build a project in small groups and strengthen their communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills. The flashcards will also be used daily by students to practice their math facts. Students will learn the need for giving precise instructions to their partners, and how to look at a project with the end goal in mind. The bins will help students to organize all of the STEM materials in our class.

This project will allow my students to gain teamwork skills they can use in all aspects of their life. Please support our students becoming the STEM leaders of tomorrow!
