My Students

Our elementary school is full of students who love to learn and explore. They live in a small mountain town in North Carolina.

My students are hard workers who want to succeed.

They love to learn together. We try to let each child know they belong and matter to all of us. Our classroom community strives to support each other in all we do. We work together to help every student grow and learn. Our school is in high poverty, rural area that is two hours from any major city. We are a classroom full of students aiming to reach their highest potential.

My Project

A Generation Genius online subscription will help our science topics come to life and make learning science fun. Generation Genius videos teach content with wit and wisdom. They explain and engage while keeping it fun and light. The videos will enrich students learning and encourage further study. The book will encourage reading and exploration of science topics.

Generation Genius will enrich our 4th-grade science standards delivery and student achievement through highly engaging videos and experiments.

This style of learning will help my students, boys and girls alike, to be equally engaged in real life science. Each topic includes an exciting video, vocabulary, experiment, and quiz. Help my students become super scientists with Generation Genius!
