My Students

My students come from an urban area with diverse backgrounds, so they are facing multiple life issues. This can be difficult for anyone, so it is highly important that they are afforded a classroom environment that promotes their learning and well being first and foremost.

They are enthusiastic, ambitious, and motivated learners.

I wish for each one of my students to have the opportunities that they so rightfully deserve in a classroom environment that provides ample and worthwhile learning experiences.

My Project

STEM is an integral component in the classroom. My students are young and exuberant learners, and I want them to have as many valuable learning opportunities as possible. Their engineering and mathematical hats will be in full effect as they work with the magnetic and interlocking building sets. The students will be able to create vast 3D models using a variety of shapes. They will be able to decide on length and width as they build using their creativity and imagination.

Children soar when given the tools to build, create, experiment and explore.

I want my students to learn the importance of taking care of plants. I have requested succulent plants, planters and soil. I want them to be environmental scientists as they plant, care for and observe succulent plants in the classroom. It will allow them to investigate and journal the plants growth, as well as teach them responsibility as they nurture the plants. I want my students to have ample opportunities to grow, learn and succeed.
