My Students

As a teacher in one of the most highest poverty school districts in the state, my students are faced with daily challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, I am aiming for school to be a safe place where my students can learn, express themselves and their creativity.

My students come from diverse linguistic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

My classroom is a fully inclusive classroom filled with the most enthusiastic and creative learners. This means there are both general and special education students learning together and from one another. Day in and day out, I'm amazed at how they look at the world. Their sense of wonder, curiosity and enthusiasm for learning makes me excited for what the future holds.

My Project

Kindergarteners learning to code? Absolutely!! And in this day in age...it’s necessary! Coding has become relatively simple and children love learning it. Young students are often familiar with robots, they've seen them, have older siblings who have used them, or they've at least heard of them. This year I would love to begin to introduce coding to my Kindergarten students. By using the Code & Go Robot Mouse and Coding Legos even the youngest learners are given access to this fun and important skill.

Coding not only teaches computer skills, but critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving.

Robots and legos are both great hands-on ways for my students to learn about coding.They will be able to see how their commands make the robots move in real life, rather than just working on paper or in an app. These activities will help my young students learn to code in a fun, concrete, and hands-on way! It will also help them be prepared for future that is oozing with technology. Please help my little coders!!
