My Students

My students attend a Title I school. They are bright, energetic, and eager to learn. They don’t let anything slow them down. Many of my students are bilingual. Their parents immigrated to this country for a better life. This year one of our school’s goals is to break down some of the language barriers and help more parents become involved at our school.

Eighty percent of my students qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.

As a result some of my students struggle to get access to some of today’s necessities much less technology. Their thirst for knowledge is only limited by the resources available to them. I have always been proud of the tenacity they have shown to learn and I will do everything I can to help them.

My Project

My students love to learn, and robotics have captured their imagination. They are fascinated by all the jobs robots can do and inspired to create new robots to solve more of the world’s challenges. But, first we need to learn to code! My students will be using the new tablets to get hands-on experience learning how to code our classroom robots.

They can program a robot to run through a maze; see it carry, push and pull objects.

Those are just some of the things my students kindergarten through fifth grade will accomplish. As they learn how a robot functions and how to make it move in specific ways, students will be inspired to problem solve further. Once we conquer our classroom robots, it’s on to seeking out new jobs and designing new robots to accomplish the tasks! The future belongs to those students who dare to dream the next big idea, and have the skills to make those ideas happen.
