My Students

I work with a group of amazing students that come from very diverse backgrounds. Although more than 82% of my students live in poverty, they come to school with the motivation to learn and succeed.

Many are the children of Mexican and South American immigrant working families that struggle to provide better lives for their children.

Every day these students amaze me with their resilience to overcome hardships and their motivation to grow and succeed both personally and academically. They leave me optimistic about our future!

We are a 6-8 magnet school with limited money to purchase innovative equipment to truly promote STEM skills, activities, and interest. I would love to see our students engaged in hands-on activities to inspire their interest in coding, engineering or robotics.

My Project

This curriculum will help guide my understanding of computer science foundations and help me provide more effective lessons and instruction to my students. The Sphero curriculum aligns with the robotic equipment I am using in my classroom and provides curated lessons that are differentiated to meet the needs of different learners. This will also benefit me by proving solid examples of hands-on learning activities and formative and summarize assessments that can deploy in my daily instructional practice. Finally, the curriculum looks fun! My kids will be engaged in the activities and develop a love

For programming and computer science and engineering.
