My Students

My students are energetic and motivated to learn. I see all the students in grades one through four at our school to work on STEM related activities. We focus on math, science, engineering, and technology, but we also work on perseverance, problem solving, and team work through all of our challenging activities. I try to make learning fun for all of my students.

My students love technology, building, and experimenting.

I hope to help my students fulfill their desire to learn through hands-on learning and technology.

My Project

These Botley Robot kits will have a huge impact on the students at our school. Currently, I don't introduce robotics to the students until 3rd grade. The students love doing robotics as 3rd and 4th graders, but I'd love to introduce robotics at an even earlier age.

I'd like a classroom set of Botley robot kits to use with the first and second grade students at Brooke elementary.

They would be a great introduction to robotics and programming a machine to complete specific tasks.

With these kits, I'd be able to complete robotic activities with all the students I see, instead of just the older students at our school. I can't wait to open up the world of robotics to the my younger students. They can't wait either!
