My Students

I work in a school that is primarily in poverty. I work with the higher ability students. They are capable of achieving so much! Unfortunately, our school doesn't always have the funding to provide exactly what is needed when enriching these students.

My students deserve the best that school has to offer.

They are such nice kids and want to learn everything possible. They have the ability to achieve​ so much in their lives. I want to help as much as I can!

My Project

I want to prepare my kids at a very young age for possible jobs they may pursue.

I want them to learn coding and lessons that teach thinking critically.

Coding will be important for jobs with technology, but it will also help them think on a different level!

Teaching with technology makes it fun and memorable. These Osmo games will provide great enrichment and fun.

Please think of the lasting impression these types of lessons will have. It provides a great foundation that I can help them build on. My students and I would really appreciate your gratitude and find great use for this equipment.

Thank you for considering our learning.
