My Students

I am fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs in rigorous teaching strategies and expect only the best from our students.

My school is proud to be a "Leader in Me" school that works on taking author Steven Covey's 7 Habits, making them age-appropriate and working them into our school campus, so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.

The "Leader in Me" is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.

Students learning the habit of solving conflicts, then becoming conflict managers, is just one way the "Leader in Me" program on our campus appears in action. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, the 7 Habits teach students to lead.

My Project

I have found that students are, more than ever, eagerly wanting to learn more about what they can do on their Chromebooks. Coding is a great way to utilize some of our math and science standards, while giving students the opportunity to design and engineer on their Chromebooks. This course allows me to not only learn the basics of coding but also the best way to teach students the basics of coding. I believe giving my 3rd graders this opportunity at such a young age could blossom some interest in students for future interests and careers in things like Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and so much more. My students will learn some basics of computer coding but it could lead into a lot more when given the opportunity.
