My Students

My students are a unique group within our school district. My students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade are a branch of the Special Education Department that need specific educational standards to help them grow emotionally, socially, and creatively. My students are in a program called the Gifted and Talented program.

They are such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals.

Some of my students are learning to defeat their fear of making mistakes and challenging themselves how to learn coding on the computer using CSFirst, Scratch and Code.org. My students desire to use their coding knowledge to program robots. Having the excitement of coding implemented within a robotic toy such as the Cue or Littlebits, brought immense excitement to my students. After our field trip to the hands on learning center, my students have continuously asked me to purchase the electronic robots.

The requested Robotic kits will enhance and engage students with a hands-on approach to working with the future demands of coding. My students are a wonderful group of students who excel at challenging endeavors such as coding and as their teacher, I want to subject them to as much as I can offer them while

My Project

According to Francis Eberle, Ph.D., executive director for the National Science Teachers Association, STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and launches the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy. This innovation and science literacy depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEM areas. It is clear that most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding of math and science. 10-year employment projections by the U.S. Department of Labor show that of the 20 fastest growing occupations projected for 2016, 15 of them require significant mathematics or science preparation.

My goal as my students teacher is to prepare them with the tools necessary to become employable in the STEM/STEAM areas by subjecting them to engineering concepts within the coding and robotic areas.

My students have become immersed in the learning of block coding and are ready to start using their knowledge of coding with robots.

My goal is to set up centers for the students to work with a partner to solve creative problems and come up with amazing solutions using their coding skills with the robots.
