My Students

My Learning Soldiers are motivated, hard working, energetic children with the desire to learn! Despite the many challenges of inner city and urban life, these children are driven and geared up for educational tasks. Unfortunately, the disparities of resources often hinders their ability to compete on the same level due to timing and lack of exposure...not aptitude.

Universally, it is my belief that regardless of socioeconomic status and demographics, ALL children deserve the opportunity to experience the best possible quality education!

My Project

The Magna-Tiles will be readily available to my students to use independently and collaboratively to build and develop critical thinking skills using interactive and innovative STEM lessons. The translucent magnetic tiles give students a fun way to learn and explore geometry concepts…as they build! The plastic tiles have magnets built right in, so they stick together from every side—as students explore symmetry, area and perimeter, angles and more. Typically, learning experiences that are engaging lead to retaining valuable knowledge.

Thank you in advance for your support and role in building(no pun intended ) a solid foundation for our "Learning Soldiers", the future leaders!
