My Students

As a teacher in a community faced with high poverty and socioeconomic difficulties, my students are faced with a variety of challenges each day both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges, my students are curious and filled with imagination, open hearts, and minds. Our school is Title I, which supports free breakfast and lunch provided to students at school. I must make their school experience meaningful.

I focus on their potential and growth from the moment they walk into the classroom.

I aim to provide my students with creative and positive learning experiences that will foster their curiosity. It is my job as an educator to allow their curiosity to expand and their skills to develop and grow while keeping them inspired to learn.

My Project

Students will use the Botley Coding Robot to participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related activities. My students will love building chain reactions together and programming their robot to generate the chain reaction. Students will be working in an environment that allows flexibility and creativity while promoting problem solving skills.

They will build, construct, imagine, design, problem solve, collaborate, and create during a Maker Space time.

These materials will allow my students the opportunity to use their imagination and creativity while supporting STEM activities by sorting, grouping, counting, designing, constructing and putting physics into play. It will also boost fine motor skills while promoting reasoning and problem solving as children create.
