My Students

My students are proud to be 5th graders at a Personalized Learning School. They are the “top” of the school and looked up to by all the younger students. We are a lower-income school where half receive free or reduced-price lunch. I have students of varying special needs, behaviors, and interests.

My students show​ a lot of determination to find a way to solve problems.

The problems could be in math, reading, lunch, art, or life. As an educator, I strive to give my students the skills and materials needed to solve the problems they encounter. I have a very dynamic group of students. They have a love for learning and a willingness to attempt new pursuits.

Through DonorsChoose.org, with the help of all the amazing donors, students are able to have experiences where they learn new skills or master old ones.

When students are done with a specified task, they want to find new ways to express their learning. As a project is funded, it shows students that people are invested in their success. Using the materials requested allows students to find another way to show their learning/mastery with items that might not have been available otherwise.

My Project

There are plenty of ways for students to work on their creativity in school. I am fortunate that I teach in a school that embraces Personalized Learning. My students have more of a voice in what and how they are learning. This project for LEGO supplies, bins, and a shelf will help my students navigate through many parts of their learning.

LEGO sets add beauty and originality to projects.

The practicality of having a shelf and bins to store the LEGO supplies and creations will help students learn to be more responsible with supplies. There are many life lessons that students need to learn before adulthood and this is just one way to aid students in that task.

My students would love a LEGO wall where they can create mosaics, math problems, or anything their minds can think to create. They will be engaged while their are working individually or with groups. The potential of endless engagement is a reality with this project.
