My Students

I have a wonderful class of motivated students who are eager to learn and engage in new forms of education. My students are sweet, hard-working and dedicated students who enjoy learning, using technology, art, music, and collaborative group work.

They are curious, eager, and always willing to go the extra mile, and so I want to provide them with any and all the resources I possibly can.

I am very lucky to be the teacher to these wonderful group of kids.

My Project

Using the Lego Mindstorms, students will have the opportunity to build engineering skills, critical thinking skills, and cooperative group skills. They will learn how to problem solve, how to work collaboratively, and how to build and program robots!

Students will use Lego and Technology to learn about collaboration and critical thinking.

The Lego Mindstorms help students meet Science, Math, Speaking, and Listening Standards! There is so much to learn from building and programming these Lego sets, plus students will highly enjoy watching their finished products rolling around the classroom! Students will eagerly work on these sets and be thrilled when they complete them!
