My Students

As Barack Obama states, "Computers are going to be part a big part of our future ... and that future is yours to shape." As educators, it is our responsibility to prepare our students to be productive members of the twenty-first century in the field of computer science.

I teach a dynamic bunch of enthusiastic and creative fourth-grade students who will prepare for a bright future.

My biggest challenge is having technology resources for all children to prepare them for jobs in computer science. My goal is to try to develop a small set of classroom laptops in my classroom, one laptop at a time. The purpose of having this laptop is to teach computer coding using the Hour of Code Website and others. First, I want to teach my students to read and write code with a computer and then, I plan to take it a step further using robots. I teach a multicultural fourth-grade class in a Title I school with limited resources. By the end of the year, I expect to see my students' reading, math, science, and social studies levels rise.

My Project

Jan Cuny, Program Director, National Science Foundation, states,

"All of today’s kids will need—along with reading, writing, and arithmetic—a basic understanding of computation and the role that it plays across a wide range of disciplines.

Coding is engaging and empowering. It’s a necessary 21st Century skill." In this project proposal, my students will benefit tremendously from a chromebook. This chromebook will be used for enrichment activities such as, computer science. My goal is to develop a set of chromebook one step at a time. I agree with this quote by Jan Cuny because I believe that computer coding relates in an interdisciplinary manner to the subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Computer coding is a twenty first century skill and learning to code will boost all of my students' futures. Creating codes through programming allows all students to use their inner creativity as they express themselves in different ways. Students can create apps through computer coding. This will inspire all students to become innovators of tomorrow. We need to stimulate all young children to develop an interest in the STEM field early on. With the support of wonderful donors from Donorschoose, you can help pave the way for talented kids to learn how to make with technology. They can become doers and makers in the field of STEM. I hope to instill a strong foundation for all of my students as they develop all the necessary skills needed for their bright futures. Let's inspire all of my children to unlock the world of opportunities for themselves with this beautiful chromebook as they learn how to code. Let's donate and empower all young children to develop an innate passion for computer science today! Clubs, giving students the opportunity to read and talk about their books, deepening their thinking along the way. My students can't get enough of book clubs, and they love great series books, so this is a recipe for successful readers!
