My Students

Inquiring, knowledgeable and caring describe the students in my classroom. High poverty, English language learner and below grade level reader describe the challenges that the majority of my students face everyday with dignity and grace.

Nonetheless, my students are a community of learners that show up early to class and beg to stay late!

Our elementary school in an International Baccalaureate school that aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people. We also have an EAST Initiative (Environmental and Spatial Technology) classroom, that I teach, that focuses on solving problems in our community and beyond with the latest technology. The demographics of the students that attend our school are 59% Hispanic, 25% Caucasian, 12% Pacific Islander, 12% African American, and 2% other. Over 85% of the students receive free lunch, and 72% of the students are reading below grade level. The above statistics speaks volumes to the success that is sure to come for these students with support from their teachers and community.

My Project

My students want to be innovative with the technology that surrounds them. Coding is the new language in the digital age. Bringing this new language to life in the classroom by building 3D structures that can move and react is exciting.

Students learn through experimentation and their brains are challenged to think abstractly when they code.

My students already have ideas of how they can incorporate the "Little Bits" coding sets into their final projects this year. As a teacher, I look forward to the confidence my students will develop through problem-solving and coding using the Little Bits coding system!
