My Students

My students are a diverse group of children coming from all areas of Charleston County. They are made up of all income levels, education levels, and home support levels. Each students brings a different perspective to our classroom.

The invention of new technology has changed the future jobs my students will compete for.

I am working with my students to develop skills in technology for coding and invention purposes. We are also learning to use technology as a collaborative tool.

My Project

My students will use the greenhouse to begin learning about the science behind growing and sustaining their own food. It is important to give my students a hands-on experience to help them feel excited about growing and harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables.

Agriculture is an ever evolving industry that requires innovation and passion to continue providing for our countries needs.

It is important to teach my students the excitement and joy of growing their own fruits and vegetables. These materials will help give my students the opportunity to solve real world problems and learn valuable lessons about sustainability. The joy that comes from growing and eating your own food will be a valuable life lesson that will have an impact for their lifetime.
