My Students

Our school is very good at a few things and the students are very lucky for that. We are an arts integrated school and we have many opportunities for students to get involved in athletics as well. But one place where we need some help is with our CTE program. CTE stands for career and technical education and while many people think of it as "shop class", it can be so much more than that!

My students come from a wide range of backgrounds and so I want their CTE program to expose them to a wide range of skills and career options.

Many students feel like they are limited in their post high school options. Some think that a college degree is out of their reach and some think that attending 4 year college is their *only* option. But with a full sequence of CTE courses to choose from, they'll have their eyes opened to new opportunities!

My Project

My FIRST Robotics Team - 7275 is currently working with a single robot chassis and so only a few students can work on it at any given time. In order to increase access to our growing robotics program, we simply need more robots! :) To achieve this, we are requesting a second robot chassis kit and the bare necessities [Talon Speed Controllers and an NI RoboRio-the Brain] to get it up and running.

This new robot will improve my students learning because it will allow new team members to get access right away so they can tinker and learn the basics.

The veteran team members will also benefit because they will have a second chassis to prototype new ideas and conduct testing as needed. They will also get the chance to train our new members on the robot basics and so they'll further cement their own skills in the process.
