My Students

We are located in a small farming community in rural Indiana. We are located approximately 30 miles southwest of Indianapolis.

My students are hard working, want to learn and have big dreams.

Our cluster makes up two classroom with 40 second grade students altogether. Our students come from a wide range of economic backgrounds. We also have a wide range of academic abilities. My students are different in many ways but they have one thing in common, their love for learning and their love for giving to other people.

My Project

My classroom needs supplies to help create STEM boxes. We will use the building blocks, marble run set, slot-a-shape builders, and much more to challenge the way we think. These supplies will be placed in a box with a weekly challenge. Student will grab the box and try to create the challenge. The challenge will consist of things like building a bike using the slot-a-shape builders, or create a bridge using the building blocks. These items will help improve their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills.

Please help me challenge my students.

They will use their problem solve skills while they are creating. They will also have to listening to their friends ideas and learn how to work together as a team.
