My Students

I teach an afterschool coding program for students in second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. Some of my students have been coding since they were in first grade, and it helps them with problem-solving and group activities. It also helps with their communication. For my students with disabilities, it helps them to learn social skills, and they learn the skills to cultivate relationships with their general education peers.

This year we would like to step up our game and include robots in our program to increase the peer to peer interaction and presentation skills.

The Lego We Do kits from Lego Education are great to use for these activities and offer many possibilities. My school is located in the suburbs of Detroit and over half of the students in the school are from low-income families and learning these skills can help them in the future when they leave elementary school

My Project

Help me show the students in my afterschool program, how to work in a group, problem-solve, and present projects. Teach them how to improve communication skills while having fun coding on code.org and brainstorming and building with legos WeDo kits. Help them bring their skills to the next level and prepare for future jobs in stem fields. Students can use these skills in all aspects of life, and puzzle-solving using in coding can show them a logical way to approach problems in the future. By taking our expertise to the next level and starting to include robots, the students will learn the cause and effect of programing by seeing their programs come to live in the movement of the robots.
