My Students

This is my fourth year as a teacher and every year, I continue to learn. Through the supportive staff, the amazing opportunities to grow as a teacher, I can't see what there isn't to love.

My students are what drive me every single day to not only be a better person but to be a better teacher.

Their enthusiasm and love for learning is the light on the darkest of days. Although they all learn a different way, they always want to help each other within the classroom and outside of the classroom. As a teacher, I couldn't want anything more.

My Project

Working at a Title I school, my students have very little experience with STEM. However, they have shown interest in participating in STEM and coding, throughout our weekly Genius Hour.

I want to provide students with the experience of STEM, hands-on learning and structured play throughout the week.

I have requested a variety of items such as Ozobots and Makey Makey kits which will allow students to learn how to code. The Little Bits, will teach them about circuits and how they are all around us. Brain Flakes and the Tinker Toys will allow students to view 2D images and then create them in 3D. The Bloxels will allow them to create their own video games. Everything that I have requested will allow students to find something STEM-related that they are interested in and tinker with it. Then they will be able to turn those thoughts into reality. I would like to add a STEM block into my schedule on Fridays, to allow students to strengthen their mind and create magic in the classroom!
