My Students

We are an integrated collaborative teaching (ICT) first-grade class, with a mixture of general and special education students at a high-needs, Title I school in the Bronx. While the majority of students come from low-income homes or from homes with limited parental involvement, they are enthusiastic and come to school every day ready to learn. They see school as a consistent part of their daily lives and love to make me proud.

My first graders are some of the happiest children I have ever had the pleasure of working with; they inspire me to provide the best education I can for them.

My Project

I want to create a makerspace for my first grade students in my classroom. In this space, my students will have access to organized stored items and supplies that will support their imagination to be creative to explore science, technology, engineering, and math.

A STEM makers space will help my students connect their imagination and creativity to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

The storage shelves, cubbies, and bins will help my students organize the materials needed for an exciting and engaging makers space classroom. I am excited to see my students put their imagination in action when exploring science, technology, engineering, and math in our first grade STEM makers space classroom.
