Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

Gifted Education has always been very controversial and it should be! Who doesn't want a place to grow thrive and belong? I am a teacher of 20+ years and every year seems like the very first day- thrilling, anxious, and always needing more! I teach Gifted Education for 2nd through 6th grade students this year that come from a mixed background of Asian, AFrican-American, Polish, Hispanic, and Caucasian students. These students astound me every minute of everyday. They are the smallest humans but they have the biggest thoughts and questions. They yearn to do more and be more which always keeps me on my toes.

I want to maintain the momentum!

This means providing more challenging STEM and STEAM activities that promote thought and creativity. I want them to love being curious, explore their mistakes, and Express in provoking ways that peak imagination.

My Project

All of my classes will be able to enter a classroom that's bursting with the excitement of learning and curiousity everyday. The robots and coding kits will connect them with technology that is everchanging. This will allow for conversations of inquiry and thought for boys as well as girls; for the younger students as well as the older students. They will be able to work independently and at their own pace as they tinker and try what works and what doesn't.

These materials are everything and ore to my students.

They will foster students' thinking as they learn the design process and utilize it when they build and create.
