My Students

I teach STEM to our Pre-K class at our school, located in rural Alabama. The majority of our students receive free or reduced lunches. We are a Title I school.

We are working hard to prepare our students for a positive future.

We want to spark creativity with STEM! They get so excited with each and every STEM lesson beaming with joy at their successes!

They may be little, but they are budding scientists and engineers! STEM class is one of their favorite classes because they are challenged to find solutions to real-life problems.

My Project

Students today are twice as likely to study STEM fields compared to their parents. We are trying our best to expose our students to as much STEM as possible to prepare them for their futures.

When exposed to STEM early on, students are more likely to choose a STEM career and make 2 times more than non-STEM career wage earners.

I want to transform my children into expert builders! With the Lego Tech Machines Set in my classroom, the students will develop their fine motor and problem-solving skills while they construct classic machines.

The need for encouragement is particularly great among girls and minority students. This will really give my little ones the head start that they need to help them succeed in math and science.

STEM has hands-on exploration that lets students play, explore, and invent; integration of two or more subjects; real-world connection that links lessons to actual problems and solutions; and the use of technology to facilitate learning.
