My Students

My students are kind and loving. I work at a Title 1 school, teaching 6th grade and at least 90% of our students are minorities who live in poverty. My students' hearts are full of adventure, but they face obstacles of poverty that surround them every day outside of school. I try to make school an escape and a safe place for them to just be a kid. As a science-geek myself, I love to share my enthusiasm with students and get them to see a bigger picture of learning which can only be fostered by important character qualities such as teamwork, perseverance, giving 100%, never giving up, and using failure as an opportunity to succeed are developed through robotics.

My Project

Our school was selected to participate in the district and Lego Regional challenges for Robotic Engineering. We were fortunate enough to receive a Robotics Table Top.

We need a base to put our Robotics Table Top on so our 6th grade Robotic Engineers can test out their coding skills.

Although a select group of students get to participate in official challenges, our Family STEAM Night will provide all students with an opportunity to see our robots in action!.

The robot base and table will provide students the opportunity to design and perfect their missions prior to competition. The trial and error portion of this project requires strong teamwork skills and collaboration as well as mathematical prowess.
