My Students

I teach the dreamers, the creators, and the future engineers of our nation that can and will achieve anything they desire with the right tools and motivation. They are changing minds every day by accomplishing great change and exploration in the classroom.

In our class, we are loud, energetic, and in love with learning!

The greatest achievement in my life is taking a student afraid of their possible success at the beginning of the year and teaching them to trust themselves and their own intelligence by the end.

These kids will inspire the world to be better. I know this without a doubt because they have already made me my best.

My Project

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to walk the peppermint paths of Candyland? Or how it would feel to be the one in charge of building the incredible places in our daily lives? We are seeking the resources to make these inquiries a reality for our students!

The fourth grader teachers at our school are seeking the supplies to create fun and exciting project based lessons that drag the lessons from the page into a playground of fantasy integration!

With simple props, giant tasty treats, and colorful collections of decorations, we will transform our project classroom into the ultimate review Candyland game! A few safety cones and vests will turn our students into the crew of their very own construction site, strapped with the job of figuring out the hardest area and perimeter tasks to wrap up the days work. And through the use of blacklights and day glow materials the students will have out of this world sci-fi math and reading experiances!

These projects have been designed to test the students abilities while engaging their interests and imaginations!
