My Students

My students are a bright, curious, and caring group! They are hard workers who love discovering new things, and they are a joy to be around!

My students really appreciate any new learning tools and materials that they have access to.

They love using hands-on materials to explore and learn!

We live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, in an area with limited resources. My students are always up for a challenge, and they enjoy being creative. They need materials and supplies to be able to be the best learners they can be!

My Project

My students come from an area with limited community resources when it comes to science, technology, engineering, and math. These STEM materials will help my students explore these crucial areas of the world we live in. The STEM materials will help my students flourish academically and will help to spark their interest in learning about these subject areas.

These STEM activities will help my students be more engaged in learning.

The Global Challenges Kit and Windmill Designer Lab will allow my class to think about, explore, and design solutions to real-world environmental concerns. The Folk Tales problem solving materials will tie into our traditional literature unit while allowing my students to think critically to solve problems. Finally, the Building Brick STEM Challenge Kit will allow my students to be creative and challenged as they use their engineering skills. These STEM supplies can help put my students on the path to being the problem-solvers of tomorrow!
