My Students

I teach at a Title I School in North Carolina where the majority of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. My students come to school excited to learn.

As their teacher, I understand each student learns in numerous ways. Students are naturally eager, inquisitive, and creative to learn new things. One child may absorb the lesson visually, while another child may require a more hands-on approach to fully grasp the concept. I have found they experience more success with a combination of both experiences. These types of styles offer them the opportunity to learn through exploration thereby, increasing student engagement and building self-confidence.

My Project

This product challenges them to enhance necessary problem-solving skills, by applying creative solutions using practical and non-consumable items.

The addition of STEM bins in the morning routine would provide students more independence, offer a variety of learning options, and play a key role in preparing them for the future.

The most effective way to increase student learning, is by ensuring the content is immersive, enjoyable and rooted in the subject matter. Through 22 unique manipulatives, eight challenge cards per activity, and more, the students will develop multiple perspectives in the visual arts, strengthen fine motor skills and inspire creativity in completing tasks, all while relishing in the process.
