My Students

We are a small-town school with students who work hard for everything that they have. They thrive on education and knowledge. They know how important learning is. They aspire to go to the next level when they graduate high school. They have big dreams and great hopes for their futures.

Our students take pride in their small community and represent the town in a positive way with all of the activities that they participate in.

They are involved in speech contests, one-act plays, band and choir competitions, and sports activities. Quiz bowls, science fairs, FFA projects, mentoring programs, and scholastic competitions are also activities that our students take part in.

The students at our school are proud of their school and community. They get compliments from wait staff when they go to restaurants on their manners and respect towards people outside of the community.

As a teacher at our high school, I take pride in our students and how they treat one another and others. They deserve to have the best opportunities for their education and future.

My Project

The "Coding to Fly and Soaring High" project is designed to explore a new and creative way to expose and teach students coding and programming. It is fun to fly drones but it is very fulfilling and more educational to code those drones to fly.

The Tello EDU drone is an educational tool that could create an interest for a student to pursue a computer science career.

When incorporating the drones into a coding and programming unit - the students will experience the basics of coding which can be the door that opens up to the higher levels of the coding world.

Coding and programming should be taught right alongside subjects such as physics, geometry and algebra. It is a skill that our kids will need to have for the future!
