My Students

Forty years ago, Apple was just a fruit. Twenty years ago, Google was just a funny word. Did you know that over half of the jobs that current pre-kindergarten students will hold when they graduate high school in 2033 don't even exist yet?

I work as the technology lab teacher in a great, diverse, and effective school.

Here, we have a mix of students who live locally, within walking distance, and many others who travel by school bus, city bus, and private van service to come to our school daily.

We have general education classes, special education services, and students who have been identified as gifted and talented. Our students were born in this country or overseas and many are new to the the English language. I teach students with professional parents and students who rely on government assistance to live and eat. Every one of these students are "my kids".

My Project

Our school is currently undergoing a full-scale construction project, and our schoolyard is completely closed, for the next two years. We do have a gym, but it's scheduled all day, every day, where each class gets one 50 minute period per week. This situation hinders the children's ability to get outdoors, but play happens in all areas of our school. Although we are academically focused, we make every effort to make sure that our students get a well-rounded day, and have various opportunities to explore through hands-on, bodies-on playing. These opportunities are assessment-free and with zero pressure to perform.

Using these LEGO Coding Express toys, my early childhood students will be able to play with trains, right in the computer lab!

Using the Coding Express trains, just through play and exploration, they will discover how the various blocks make the train act and react. They can move parallel with the train, and even mimic the train's movements separately and in groups. They are only limited by their own energy! Yes, they will learn, but more importantly, they will simply PLAY.
