My Students

Our classroom is an open and inviting environment designed to foster independent student learning. My students are thirsty for new materials to continue their education.

I teach in a public urban multi-age Montessori school with sixty-five first through sixth-grade students.

My students learn through small group and individual lessons, research and inquiry, and by going out into our community. My students come from all different backgrounds racially and socioeconomically and live in an urban setting. My co-teacher and I are piloting a combined Montessori 1st-6th grade classroom.

My students are involved in social justice and environmental conscious movements, taking a stand and trying to better the world. Our students work hard with the resources they have to follow their passions and find meaning in their education.

My Project

In our Montessori classroom, students are often given the chance to be handy and help with building or fixing projects.

With the materials in this project students will be able to use real tools that are sized for their hands and bodies, allowing them to gain authentic real world experience and feel like they are helping the community.

We have had students help build and fix furniture, and often need to repair our Montessori materials. We need one adult sized set of tools, two student sized sets of tools, and assorted hardware so that we are able to take care of our classroom environment. We also need work gloves which can be used for projects around the classroom, or for when we are taking care of our classroom garden beds in our school hoop house. Students love feeling like they have helped, gain confidence in attempting tasks, and are given the chance to be independent and think critically.
