My Students

My students are a wonderfully diverse group, who are learning to collaborate together to figure out how and why the world around us works and changes. The best part about my class is that everyone brings their own set of strengths. I have a mix of English language learners, special education students, and gifted students working together in my class, which requires differentiation in everything we do! This year we are studying physical science - matter, energy and the engineering process. My goal is to make science inquiry-based in every possible way - this includes offering many lab experiences!

The best feeling as a teacher is seeing my students work effectively as a team to take learning into their own hands in order to problem solve and think critically.

These are valuable skills that students will leave my classroom with and use for the rest of their lives.

My Project

My sixth grade students are full of energy and eager to learn! Their curiosity about how the world works motivates me to create a space where science is fun and engaging. While I strive to provide hands-on learning experiences for my students, there are times when direct instruction is necessary. Some of my students struggle to maintain focus during this time because they simply need to move.

My students want to be successful scientists.

These standing desks will allow my students another option to fulfill their movement needs. Having these desks available will benefit the individual students as well as decrease distractions during important teacher-lead instruction.
