My Students

There are 18 "little chickadees" working, learning, and playing together in my kindergarten classroom! These precious children enter my safe and bright classroom each day excited to learn through a variety of well-planned hands-on centers, small group explorations, and entire class activities. Through participation in these activities, my kindergarteners develop cognitive and social skills, language abilities, as well as acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills for school success.

My school is a Title 1 school located in a rural area with approximately 450 students who come from a variety of backgrounds and ethnicities, some of whom are homeless or in foster care, and many who come from families that serve at our local military bases.

Because every student demonstrates a natural curiosity to learn, it's my passion to inspire them and guide them in expanding their love of learning while building knowledge, developing their ability to socialize, and engaging in interactive projects that teach while learning to focus on tasks at hand.

My Project

My project "Coding in Kindergarten" is a hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) project which provides learning materials that encourage problem solving and perseverance as the students participate in open-ended play or complete challenges. For example, the children can use Botley the Coding Robot to map and execute a path to avoid obstacles or reach a destination. The hard case would provide a practical place to store and access Botley.

These experiences prepare children for their future in a tehcnology-centered world as they learn to solve problems and think creatively.

With intentional teacher support and challenge cards, these developmental materials spark new ideas and challenge deeper thinking. Please support my project "Coding in Kindergarten" and give my students hands-on learning STEM experiences that will impact the rest of their lives.
