My Students

I am the teacher of very energetic and remarkable 4th-grade students in a city with the most ethnically diverse neighborhood in our country! Our district has over 48,000 students, encompasses almost 2,000 square miles, and has more than 130 schools and programs. There are over 100 languages spoken by families in our school district.

Each morning my students walk through the door and are greeted with new opportunities to learn and to be successful.

My students are very creative and, as their teacher, I do my best to foster their learning and provide opportunities to grow as individuals. Our classroom is full of eager learners and very hard workers with ethnically and economically diverse backgrounds. Each of my students come from his or her own unique situation and home life. Every single one of my students has strengths to share, as well as room to grow academically, emotionally, and socially. We are a strong and loving classroom community that works together to ensure learning, growth, opportunities, and successes for each other.

My Project

Using Cubelets in the classroom will be a fabulous way for my students to explore coding, design, engineering, mathematics, robotics, and real-world problem-solving strategies. These sets of Cubelets will be a fantastic point of entry into computational thinking and team-work. Students will be able to design and redesign robotic constructions, as well as use the Cubelet robot blocks to model real-world behaviors and allow students to experience a new way of creativity and critical thinking skills.

These Cubelets will be a perfect tool for collaboration and teamwork for my students.

Students will have opportunities to collaborate, communicate, and problem-solve with each other as they share their Cubelet designs and ideas.

Thanks to DonorsChoose and our many public education supporters, I may be able to offer my students the opportunity to utilize these materials to enhance their understanding and abilities to solve real-world problems through coding, design, engineering, mathematics, robotics, and teamwork. Thank you for considering our project!
