My Students

Our high school is made up of about two thousand students. We have a mix of races and socioeconomic backgrounds. We also have a large military population, so many of our students come from a wide variety of educational experiences. Our school, teachers and students work hard each day.

I teach about one hundred high school students each day.

The way the curriculum is set up, students don't receive a lot of self-guided instruction until they reach high school. I work hard to make sure that the students get as many hands-on experiences as possible. I want to help prepare them for college and life after school. I try to make my class fun and interesting for the students.

My Project

We are in need of an Acer Predator Helios 300 laptop. Our students are discovering how to design new tools needed to improve our robots but we do not have the capability of printing them.

Allowing our students to create unique robots from their own imaginations will better prepare them for the challenges of college and the real world.

This will also allow students to begin understanding the needed tools and supplies for basic robot creation. These skills can be applied to many professional fields as they move on to college or seek out professional service jobs after high school.
