My Students

My students are AMAZING! They are part of a STEAM magnet program. "The STEAM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Along with content knowledge, a strong STEAM program establishes student behaviors, which include engagement in inquiry, logical reasoning, collaboration, and investigation. The goal of STEAM education is to prepare students for post-secondary study and the 21st-century workforce."

My students love learning and questioning what they learn to gain a deeper understanding.

They love to have a voice in the depth of knowledge they learn. Even with the magnet program at our school we still need various resources to reach our goals.

My Project

My students are amazing, inquisitive and eager to succeed. I believe all students should have the opportunity to be successful in class. It is difficult, nearly impossible for students to feel successful without a few simple necessary tools. Some students struggle just to get to school with these simple items. These tools include the items on our list. Items like pencils, tape, and glues sticks are needed on a daily basis. My students enjoy making foldbooks and interactive tools to help gain an understanding of the content. Students should not have to feel shame or stress of coming into class without a pencil. Copy paper, color pencils, post-its, and highlighters are needed for student projects and interactive notebooks. We also use dry erase boards in class as a review strategy and are in need of dry erase markers.

“Success is a series of small wins” It is imperative that students experience “a win” in class every day.

These simple items will help my students feel successful in our class and compete with upper class schools in our area. I could not imagine keeping students from feeling “a win” or success just because they are not able to come to class with something as simple as a pencil. Thank you for helping us with our series of small wins and to be successful.
