My Students

I teach second grade at a school where students thrive on the success of each other, creating a loving environment for their classmates. Every morning, my students come to class with an eagerness to learn. They are a group of 19 amazing students, who work hard to come out on top with their learning.

My students encourage each other to be the best they can be and to create a loving community throughout the classroom.

They support each other in their learning and work hard to become great lifelong learners.

My Project

We are living in the age of innovation where we must educate children to be critical thinkers, creators, communicators, and inventors. My class is a great example of this as they are learning how to be thinkers and problem solvers. As we learn these 21st century skills we would love these STEM stories to spark creativity and motivate us to think critically.

These stories will introduce our class to the world of STEM thinking and inspire our class by showing us that anything is possible with hard work and determination.

These wonderfully illustrated texts will allow our class to escape inside a book by becoming young engineers, architects, and scientist. We will be able to take care of these great books by laminating labels that keep them organized and in bins ready to read!
