My Students

I have the privilege of teaching K-8 students once a week and middle school elective daily. They are the reason I got into this profession and I will do whatever I can to keep them engaged in learning. We are empowering one another to strive for greatness.

They inspire me everyday with their enthusiasm, relentless questions and desire to learn.

We are a tight knit school community dedicated to developing "learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged." These kids are innovators, dreamers, scientists, musicians, authors, artists, programmers and athletes. They are anything they set their minds to!

My Project

The requested baseplates work with LEGO and will be perfect in our Makerspace to provide another surface to build! Students of all ages love to have the opportunity to build and create without restraint. These baseplates will allow for us to store projects that are in progress.

My students are always looking for the next challenge!

With the LEGO's we have we can create obstacle courses to code our robots through. These books will provide reference and inspiration for their next creation. In addition to the books, the challenge cards for Dash and Dot are going to be a hot commodity. I cannot wait to see what my students will dream up next.
