My Students

I teach in a high-poverty area of Los Angeles. All of my students receive a free breakfast and lunch throughout the school year. Many of the families in this community have two-income households and, yet are still barely making ends meet.

Having a tough family life where priorities revolve around needs and not wants can make it tough for my little Kinder babies to learn and grow at home.

Being safe and having food on the table is what's the most important. There isn't much time or money to take the kids out to learn and explore.

That's where I come in. One of my primary goals throughout the year is to involve parents in learning as well. I want to "teach a man to fish." This enables parents to feel comfortable providing support in their homes and give them the tools they need. Providing opportunities at school that they can then take into their homes is crucial. Parents inherently want to help their children academically but don't always know how. Equipping them with knowledge and tools is key. I hope you support us.

My Project

Students will be learning computer science and coding in an interactive and fun way. The Botley robot will help students learn the basics of coding and use their problem solving skills in a unique way. The accessories pack offer various opportunities to challenge the students to create mazes for each other and develop ways to have their robot maneuver through them.

The students will be so busy having fun that they will not realize they are learning valuable lessons in teamwork, cooperation and critical thinking.

What I like best about using this robot is that it is specifically geared to young learners. It is simple to learn and is strong enough for little hands.
