My Students

My Gifted and Talented Classroom is a place that fosters creativity and discovery for students in the K-5th grades. Students are welcomed to a classroom where perseverance and grit through growth mindset in a safe environment.

My students are wonderfully creative and passionate problem solvers.

They love to figure out the why's and how's of life. In our class students are always looking for new projects and challenges. My students are an amazing group of kids and I am so proud of all of the hard work and effort that they put into their projects.

My Project

These materials such as the Molecular Model Kit and Water Pollutants Kit help encourage students to celebrate their unique individual passions. Students leading their learning and having a lasting impact on their education. Students are able to select a project that will make a difference in the world around them.

My students want to make a lasting impact in their community through their art, science, and inventions.

Some of the students projects are improving water quality, the study of art and how it can impact and inspire change, and inventions to improve the quality of life for others in need. These tools are going to help students not only heighten there learning experience but empower them to make a positive impact on others. Please help me in providing the resources to these wonderful group of kids who desire to learn more.
