My Students

"When are we going to do this again?" This question can be heard many times throughout the year in my classroom when completing activities and projects. My students are very enthusiastic about learning through hands-on projects. They are always excited about being able to build or create things on their own.

Our school has a total of 310 students in grades Pre-K through 12th in one building.

The school is in a small, rural community of around 1,000 people. Because of the community's small size, there is minimal opportunity for social interaction and the exchange of ideas and concepts learned in school. My classroom provides an outlet for ideas to flow between students through the use of collaborative projects.

My Project

Some day all my students will be deciding on what path they would like to take in life and eventually choose a career. My hope is through their experiences in my STEM class they will be able to explore some of those careers through the projects we complete. The project we are currently planning to complete by the end of the year is made possible by DonorsChoose. We would like to create custom t-shirts using our donated Cricut and Heat Press. The students will be learning about scaling, customization, and many basic financial skills that it takes to complete a project.

We will be making custom graduation t-shirts for the 6th graders.

They will get to pick what color they want their words and the placement of them on their t-shirt with the school logo. This will all be done by them, cutting the vinyl, weeding, choosing the placement, and then heat pressing onto their shirt.
