My Students

My students learn best with hands-on experiments and firsthand looks at things. They have a great enthusiasm for learning math and science and this school year, I will be teaching ELA and Social Studies as well. We are from a Title I school.

My students come to school with an eagerness to learn.

We are a Title I school. I want to grow my students' curiosity to learn by showing them that learning can be fun. Mrs. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus series always said, "Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!" My class does this with hands-on learning and STEAM. My classroom is a fun and inviting place to learn. I have hands-on activities every day. My goal is to introduce students to science in a fun way and inspire students to want to pursue a career in science. I also have a goal to inspire students to have a love of learning for years to come. I want to also teach my students how to show empathy and to be caring. We want to help our fellow students at our school and in our community that could be experiencing financial difficulties or homeless/homelessness.

My Project

Students at my school have an opportunity to learn coding through our coding club. Cosmo robot would be a great addition to coding club for our students to get a chance to learn more about how robots work.

Cosmo would be a fun, engaging way for students to be introduced to coding and to robots.

Learning coding and about robots can lead the way for students to be interested in STEM careers in the future. STEM careers are the future of our world and our children now that are introduced to these concepts are more likely to want to have a career in STEM in the future.
