Code to the Future

My students need computers to help us with learning coding and computer programming skills. In this day and age, these are the tools that will be needed to help us build the future.

My Students

Every day I walk into my school grateful for the diversity and positive attitudes of my students and families. Our school is located in Chicago. It is a Chicago Public School that is surrounded by a wonderful community of families, teachers and community partners. It is rich with love for its students and while we may not have the means to provide all our students with everything we desire for them, the students have such a joy for learning and a hunger to continue to better themselves.

It is precisely that joy of learning and hunger for new knowledge that makes coming into my school a privilege.

This is a school that has had to deal with many cuts in the last few years and still our students persevere. These are hard working students who care about school but who also know it's important to have fun in school.

My Project

The goal of this project is for students to be as excited about computer coding as they are about art and recess. The computers with touch screens will be used to learn how to code as well as to teach students how to program computers, later this year.

If there is one thing that we as people can be sure of, it's that learning about computers and how they work will be essential to the future of my students' lives.

I want to ensure that my students have the opportunity to learn about coding and do so in a way that is engaging and fun.

You will be helping my students really engage in learning by helping us with this project.
