My Students

I love my students. They are very caring and helpful. We enjoy sharing and working together on projects. I am fortunate to be able to teach such a wonderful group of kids.

The students at our school all receive free or reduced-price lunch, and my students come from high poverty.

I try my best to provide them with the tools needed for learning. I love that we are able to accept each other and work together. I love seeing their smiling faces each day.

My Project

Arizona has adopted new science standards. With these new standards, I want to provide my students with a more hands-on approach to science. This project enables me to provide my students with multiple STEM opportunities.

Children are born engineers.

Every child likes to build because it lets them get their hands on materials. When I can provide my students with STEM challenges, they learn by doing. They also learn that FAILure is just a: First Attempt In Learning. This project will provide my students with building blocks and bases to be engineers. Additionally cups, balloons, popsicle sticks, and clothes pins are great tools for STEM activities. We get to do projects like creating balloon rockets, parachutes, and bridges.

As this year is coming to a close, I asked my students a few questions: What challenged you this year? What was your favorite activity? What did you accomplish? Every answer my students gave was related to the STEM projects we did this year.
