My Students

My school is full of students ready to learn! Students come from all walks of life but the majority of our students come from inner city homes. We have created a learning environment that produces students who truly love reading and look forward to getting better.

Due to the community created at our school, students walk into school with smiles and leave with even bigger smiles.

I am extremely proud to be able to serve these students each day. They deserve the best every day. Every student has a different story but every single one is loved.

My Project

These tools, books, and activities will allow my students to work hands-on while learning. It is important as a 21st century learner to build and experiment, this helps develop many different parts of their growing brains! STEM books help to show students different areas to be interested in and LEGO building help get those hands moving!

Play can be one of the most beneficial elements to learning and growing, I strive to provide time for my students to grow and learn by playing in class often!

Engineering, designing, building, and collaborating are just a few of the awesome benefits that come from STEM toys and books!
