My Students

My students come to school every day excited about another day of learning. I know this by the smile and the conversations we have each morning. Each day we work hard together to know that as a team we can accomplish great things. With loving and supporting each other we work hard to make sure every student learns and grows together.

I teach third grade in Minnesota where a third of the students are low income.

I have fourteen wonderful students.

The students feel very fortunate and proud to come from a rural community where everyone cares for them and works hard to make a difference in their lives. We live in a town where most students know a majority of the community members. The students show their appreciation by working hard each and everyday. We have many great opportunities for students living in a rural community, but students sometimes do miss some of the opportunities that urban area may see due to funding.

My Project

Coding is a new form of technology that is helping students to advance and prepare for the future workplace. The Sphero SPRK Edition will give students the opportunity to code and learn how data they enter can change the movement of the Sphero. Through and the generous donors we have received 6 Sphero SPRKs, we are looking to be able to have one more funded so that we can have one Sphero per pair of students.

By donating you will give the third grade students the opportunity to inspire students to become more involved in robotics and other technology fields.

Students will work together in groups to make a plan in where they would like their Sphero to go. They will enter their data and watch the results of what the data they enter will do.
