My Students

I teach 3rd Grade students with a variety of learning styles. I have Kinesthetic, Visual, Auditory, and Oral learners in my classroom. My students are energetic and fun-loving individuals! Many of them come from families with low socio-economic statuses and do not have sufficient resources to provide their children with the necessary materials and supplies to complete certain STEM projects at our school. My goal is to provide my students with the tools needed to have a successful educational experience. My students work well in cooperative groups and have great success when they use their vast amounts of knowledge together to complete certain projects.

Students in my class are highly inquisitive, and they love using critical thinking and analytical skills to complete STEM projects!

To deepen their depth of knowledge, I use various types of learning tools while instructing. I feel my students deserve the best education possible whether they can afford to purchase needed supplies or not. I love teaching, but most of all.....I love my students!

My Project

The color printer will be used as an instructional technological tool to enhance their learning and understanding in the areas of the STEM disciplines. Students will use the printer to represent their data in tables and various graphical displays (bar graphs and pictographs) to reveal patterns that indicate relationships in Math and Science. It's important for students to be able to display real-world data and information in life-like examples. STEM projects will be completed such as creating graphical displays of life cycles of animals in Science as well as converting information into graphs in Math.

Enhancing the student's creativity using a color printer will cause great enthusiasm when completing classroom assignments!

Each student will be able to show what they have lerned in a colorful and creative way.
