5th Grade Classroom Teacher
This is my 14th year of teaching. I am a fifth grade elementary education teacher in Missouri. My talented students thrive from learning opportunities that showcase their creative thinking. I want my students to become academically competitive in the 21st century work force. These 21st century learning skills include; creative expression, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration. Projects and inquiry-based learning experiences encompassing these skills often times lead to a higher level of student learning occurring. Your generous donation and support is greatly appreciated. Thank you for investing in tomorrow's leaders!
I am a Kindergarten teacher in Missouri. I have been teaching for 20 years. I have taught 5th grade, 6th grade and 2nd grade - but Kindergarten fits me best! My students are inquisitive children who learn best by being involved in hands-on experiences. These experiences allow my students to work together collaboratively and expand on their communication and critical thinking skills. Your support of our project will help encourage these students to grow in these areas. Thank you!
