My Students

My Technology students are a diverse group of 5th through 8th Graders, who are learning computer science, music production, digital media design, typing and other things using MacBook Airs.

The Tech classes are extremely popular with the students, who work very hard on their projects, to perfect their creations.

My students learn more when they have fun, personalized, creative projects that allow them to express their knowledge while expressing their voice and individuality. They are intellectually curious and love debating social issues of the day as well as asking a million college level questions about Quantum Mechanics, Astro Physics, 4th and 5th Dimensional shapes and time travel. It is a blessing to teach excited young minds eager to learn everything!

My Project

This year, we are adding more tactile, hands on, fun projects into our S.T.E.M curriculum. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math.

Since we are going to add some creative projects, such as making Binary Bracelets and Necklaces, using colored beads, we are putting Art into STEM, making it STE(A)M!

This makes the learning more fun, meaningful and memorable, which leads to greater comprehension, deeper understanding and longer retention of knowledge. It also adds student choice, voice and artistic expression into the Technology class. As far as the kids are concerned, making things with your hands is just fun!
