My Students

I teach 5th grade at school where 30% of my students were effected by Harvey. My students are excited about learning and exploring various Science projects/experiments and topics. They are kind, self-motivated and inquisitive. Many of my students have dyslexia or come from homes where English is not the first language spoken. On top of that, many of our kids need to be on a free/reduced lunch program or a backpack program to have food on the weekends.

These kids are resilient and brilliant and they all deserve the best opportunities and education we can give them.

They are leaders and they strive to be great role models. They love challenges and are willing to try things on their own. It is my goal to provide them with as many opportunities to experience learning in a positive and engaging way.

My Project

Breakout EDU boxes will allow my students to discover the curriculum or review content in a new and engaging way. My students will be challenged to use clues and puzzles and work collaboratively to solve the mystery. Breakout EDU uses locked boxes with a wide variety of locks, such as directional, word, and digit locks, invisible ink, and UV flashlights to read the ink to engage students in the learning as they work together to succeed in unlocking the box.

Breakout EDU kits will challenge my students and allow them to become better problem solvers, critical thinkers, and leaders.

The Breakout EDU Kits will also encourage more participation and student engagement. Throughout the game, students will need to work on tasks that involve ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students will have to think Win-Win and synergize with teammates in order to be successful.
