My Students

My students are always eager to learn. Many are students who speak anywhere from no English to a good understanding of English, and usually, speak another language primarily. The children are so eager to learn. They pair up quickly to help those who need it.

The neighborhood is economically and culturally diverse but some families are at a financial and social disadvantage.

My students do not have many opportunities outside the classroom and love learning through hands-on projects during science. We are developing a computer science and STEM program in our school and inviting our parents as well in part with the CS4ALL initiative.

I know coding, STEM, and engineering will drive the future for our children, and I would love to give them the advantage.

My Project

Our students are getting ready to compete in their first ever LEGO League competition. We will be using LEGO WeDo 2.0 kits and coding the motors to make elevators and cranes. They have learned about architecture, durability, environmentally friendly buildings, accessibility and much more. Our students simply do not have enough blocks and baseplates to complete their amazing designs.

Our budding Boomtown architects are in need of streets, plants, flowers, ramps and people to live in it.

Their competition is right around the corner and they would love to have enough bricks to build the buildings of their dreams.

Thank you for considering our wonderful students. They are building for the future. Boomtown can be our neighborhood someday.
