My Students

My students are an awesome group of learners who show great potential to be tomorrow's leaders. We are a Title I school but my scholars come to school each day excited about learning new things. They are inquisitive little learners who thrive in hands-on, engaging learning environments and love to explore the world around them. My students truly bring joy to my life and they are my #1 reason for teaching.

Despite some of their personal challenges, my students are ALL excited about learning.

They are the happiest little people that I have ever met and they find the good in all situations. Their laughs and giggles are infectious and we are truly a family.

My Project

The robots and building sets will enhance the learning of my inquisitive students, allowing them hands-on opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of how science, engineering, technology, and math influence our everyday life. These materials will not only enhance their learning in math and science, but they will also be used for reading and writing centers, as well as, individual discovery time upon their arrival at school.

By donating to this project, you are placing technology into the hands of amazing little scholars who will be the leaders of our future.

Robots, Building Sets, and Mazes, Oh My! Each student will have access to these materials on a daily basis and will be given opportunities to allow their creative minds to explore in ways they could have never imagined.
