My Students

My students are inquisitive, thoughtful and love to be challenged! Engaging hands-on projects and STEM-based activities are favorites in the classroom. Challenging them to create, think, and work together builds great learners and individuals. Each day they come to school ready to take chances and try new things.

My students are eager to take on the challenges that face them, academically and personally; they work hard to be the best little person they can possibly be.

Our school is located in the heart of the Midwest, in small town Iowa. We have a close-knit feel with parents and teachers working together to make students successful.

Each child in my classroom works hard to become the best learner they can be. I believe that each student learns best in their individual way. It is my job to incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My Project

There are many skills above and beyond academics that students need to learn in schools. Students learn cooperation, team building and appropriate social interactions through play. While doing these activities, students build their confidence as the tasks are open-ended. Morning Tubs offer my first-grade students an opportunity to do just this. Specifically, students will use chain reaction and marble run to become engineers. They will put their utilize their fine motor skills while stretching rubber bands and moving magnets

While working in groups through exploration and building, Morning Tubs will allow students to work collaboratively and creatively.

Students are using their words to describe what it is they are trying to build. They use speaking and listening skills as they help each other through problem-solving. First-graders are developing skills above and beyond academics that they will carry with them forever.
