I am lucky to teach 17 3rd graders at Johnson Creek Elementary. My class consists of one special needs student and one English language learner. They are a wonderful bunch of students that I will always wish I could do more for as they are the reason why I love my job so much! A donation could help my students by providing them with more materials to learn from to create and explore engineering topics. This has been the first year that we have offered hands on engineering projects for our students. There are a lot of intriguing projects out there that my students can learn from, but sometimes we are not able to do them due to cost of supplies. Also, our school is taking a new individualized approach to teaching math. It would be very helpful to have more materials to pull from to address the new common core to be sure all students are mastering the curriculum.
