My Students

My students are awesome! I have a wide range of students and they are all amazing in their own right. Each student has their own loves, hopes, dreams, likes, and passions. I have students from Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and various states in the U.S.

The students in my class range in reading levels from Kindergarten to 3rd grade.

Some love science. Some love animals and nature. Some love social justice, and they are all inquisitive and love learning about new things in the world around them.

All of my students are learning who they are and where they fit in this world. But each and every one of my students love to learn new things, see how the world works, and learn how they fit into the world in which they live.

My Project

STEM items for both indoor and outdoor play enable children's minds to inquire further, try new ways of doing things, and enhance fine motor skills, observation skills and critical thinking.

My students are so inquisitive and some STEM items will enable them to deepen their experiences, both outside in the garden and playground, and inside during indoor recess and center time.

My students will love using the Big View Bug Jars and Tripod Magnifier to take a closer look at the leaves, bugs and other aspects of nature in the garden and playground. We'll watch plants grow and learn their structures with the Deluxe Root Viewer.

The LEGO Duplo blocks and multicultural World People figures will foster creativity during indoor play and enable my students to see themselves represented in their creative play.
