My Students

When you enter our orchard themed classroom you will see a group of students engaged and excited about learning! This year I have an amazing class of 21 eager, diverse, and fun-loving students. "Sprouting Success" is our motto. My students may come from different backgrounds, but they are all working toward the same goal: to learn and be the best that they can be.

My students always give their personal best and are excited about learning.

It is wonderful watching them explore and learn.

My Project

The expectations that are set for students are continually raised. It is sometimes a struggle to find a balance between pushing the students to succeed and giving them time to explore and learn. Play and learning through exploration is an important part of the learning process.

Mr. Roger’s said, “Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.”

In departure from traditional morning work, I would love to provide my students with the opportunity to have a more “STEMulating” start to their day. I want to be able to give them the opportunity to create, explore, and express themselves through hands-on, STEM activities that also help build critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Materials such as K'NEX, magnetic tiles, Legos, puzzles, and other hands-on materials give the students the ability to use their imaginations and critical thinking skills. These materials will provide the students with a fun and educational start to their day!
