My Students

My scholars are scholars living in West Dallas. The West Dallas community is a very tight-knit community that also extends to our scholars. They have been together since Kindergarten. My favorite thing about our scholars is the passion that they have for learning and growing. They are open-minded and willing to try new things and push themselves to new levels.

Our scholars are also very active in the community.

Many participate in sports through the nearby YMCA. However, we are working with our local YMCA to give them more options in a part of town that does not have many options for them.

My Project

These two iPads are the beginning of a coding program that will slowly roll out for our scholars. Scholars will be a part of an after-school program where they will learn the Apple Inc. created Swift Coding language. I will use the curriculum provided by Apple's education department to teach scholars how to code. Using the iPads and Swift coding language, scholars will learn the basics of coding, create applications for phones and tablets and eventually learn to combine coding with robotics and other advanced engineering techniques. This project is just the beginning of what is going to be a schoolwide initiative to bring coding and robotics engineering to scholars in the West Dallas area.
