Full STEAM Ahead!

There have been many changes in my world recently and I couldn't be happier about the excitement the last few months has had in store for me. This summer I relocated from Northern California to sunny Southern California. I am absolutely LOVING life down here by the beach.

Along with a new city comes a new school! I was extremely fortunate to be hired by an innovative district in full support of their teachers and classroom creativity. I was hired at a STEAM school and I have been having so much fun implementing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics  as much as possible.

While I have had lots of experience teaching the little ones I am currently experiencing life teaching intermediate students as a fourth and fifth grade combination teacher!

I can't wait to share some of the amazing projects the students have been working on.

First, take a peek into my classroom... Working with older kids has allowed me to embrace topics of their interest level. I decided to use emojis and hashtags as a component of my classroom. Check out the pics below!



 I am a lover of flexible seating and with my fourth and fifth graders is looks a little different than it did for my first graders... A post on flexible seating with older kids will be coming soon!





 Below I have some of our bulletin boards... more information about each project will be coming soon!
