My Students

If you are looking for amazing students, come to my class! I am privileged to teach some of the kindest students there are. They are willing to do what it takes to learn and help their peers in the process.

Unfortunately, several of my students have a rough life out of school.

Some don't know where their next meal is going to come from, and others go without proper care due to low income.

By creating room transformations, I am able to help students take a break from 'life' and focus on the tasks at hand. Help me make learning amazing for these awesome students and allow them to put those bad things on hold while they focus on their learning.

My Project

If you know me, then you know I love to transform my classroom into different places to give my students a real feel for what we are learning about. This Toy Story room transformation was inspired by two great teachers I was privileged to learn from at a conference a few years ago.

During this week of fun, students will get to dress up, complete STEM challenges, work on math reviews, and much more!

When students enter Andy's Room', they will get to dress up like cowboys, aliens, or other characters from the movie. We will have a variety of STEM challenges all throughout the week. We will also review several math standards that we have covered, and the kids will be so engaged while doing so! Thank you for considering this project!
