We live in a diverse community with almost 50% of our student population coming from military families from our local joint base Elmendorf–Richardson, or J-BER, in Anchorage.
My students are super science sleuths!
We explore a wide range of topics such as science safety, scientific method, life science/biology, physics, energy, magnetism, and computer science.
My students are eager learners and are up for any challenge! My goal as their teacher is to instill a life-long love of learning and science.
Computer programming is all around us. Algorithms literally run our lives. Behind it all is coding, and, yet, most schools do not explicitly teach it.
Our school district has adopted new curriculum for 7th graders to be introduced to the world of coding!
My students were amazed at what they were able to do with coding; however, given class sizes, we need a few more!
Steve Jobs is quoted as saying, "Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer...because it teaches you how to think." Having more Chromebooks in my classroom will allow my students to succeed!
