My Students

"I love going into the lab" claim all 100+ of my sixth grade students from rural Missouri. They are eager to learn about science, and I encourage my students to be inquisitive scientists.

We cover a wide range of objectives, and I strive to offer many opportunities for my students to get into the lab where I know they love to be.

There they can solve a problem, model a concept, and/or design and experiment to test their hypothesis. These kids have so much potential, and I am blessed to be their teacher.

My Project

I want to give my students every chance I can to be successful in life, in college, and in their futures. I know most of my students won't be exposed to programming and coding until they are in college, and at that point they will be behind. I want them to succeed, and to be prepared.

Coding offers so much more than mere computer skills, it offers problem solving strategies, collaboration techniques and 21st century learning skills.

My students need exposure and access to a variety of coding tools like the Sphero that doesn't limit students abilities and has many levels from beginner through advanced learners to learn computer coding. The Cublets will allow a basic introduction to robotics and how they work. With the Evo connected learning bot my students would be exposed to and interact with different types of coding. The Evo bot allows students to code with basic block coding and also with colors. The Evo will inspire students to get creative all while applying coding principles and problem solving skills.

My students deserve to be prepared for their future.
