My Students

My students range in age from pre-k through 8th grade. We are a public Montessori school which is part of a large urban district in Ohio. We follow a child-centered approach with a goal to develop each child physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Students learn in multi-age classrooms and remain with the same teacher for several years.

I am joining this amazing school to teach computer science; This is the position of my dreams!

I will design and instruct all students at every grade level. I am so excited, and can't wait to begin this new adventure!

My Project has a fabulous, free curriculum that I can use with all students in every grade. They combine a series of online puzzles and "unplugged" paper-based lessons. These lessons require some group work with basic items like playing cards, toothpicks, gumdrops, index cards, beads, elastic cord, etc. I've included the items we do not have in this project.

Learning about computer science is more than just working with code, it is about learning to think computationally, to problem solve, and to think.

Computer code is a whole other language that students need to be exposed to and become fluent in. is a fabulous vehicle for our student to learn how to do so. I've also included some reference books on coding in this project, for students who want to take their learning further, or study a particular area more in-depth.
