My Students

I teach at an amazing school full of diversity. We have over 700 students, over 100 are English as a Second Language students, over 100 are Advance Program students, along with a robust regular education program and special needs program. We call ourselves "The Greatest School on Earth," and we truly are! This school year, I will be teaching a brand-new class for our school. It will be a Digital Literacy Lab which will be strictly project-based learning. I am so excited about this new opportunity! I will get to teach all of our amazing students, either in a group setting, small groups or individually. I am blessed to teach all of our students!

I want all of the students that enter my room to have amazing experiences because they are amazing and exceptional students!

Students that will be in my classroom will be immersed in project-based learning every week and will leave excited about the next week's project!

My Project

I am excited about taking baby steps into robotic programming.

What a better time for the teacher to teacher herself, than during NTI (non-traditional instruction)!!

I want to share videos with my students as I LEARN these new skills, just like they are learning new skills at home. Sharing with them that a teacher can be a Prepared and Resilient Learner will be empowering for them and for me.

I hope that this builds some excitement as they come back to school next year ready to do some programming with. I want to build my supply of robots over the summer and this is just the start.
