My Students

I teach at 7 Title-1 schools and see approximately 325 students. 100% of my students receive assistance with breakfast and lunches. My students live in a transient military town with a high percentage of them learning English as a second language My 325 curious and energetic Kindergarten, first, and second graders need your help with resources for their learning.

My students are young, potentially gifted students who love a challenge.

They need new experiences, challenging tasks, and a classroom where they can try, fail, and try again. I want to give them every opportunity to succeed.

My Project

When teaching my young students how to problem solve, I try to give them many different experiences that do not involve a worksheet. Robots and game-based activities appeal to my K-2 students allowing them to see problem solving as something they can do and enjoy.

Hands-on coding activities allow my students to try new ideas, make mistakes, and develop solutions for a new try.

The Let's Go game is activity based and lets my students move based on coding instructions, such as hop, turn, and move in a certain direction. The Boxley Robots are programmable for my older students to traverse student-made obstacle courses. This is open-ended and allows creativity in creating the mazes and in programming the robot to efficiently complete the tasks.
