My Students

The children in my classroom range in age (6-9), grade (1st - 3rd), and abilities, but they are all exceptional.

By exceptional, I don't just mean extraordinary or remarkable (even though they are).

My students have all been identified with what most people might call "disabilities," but I prefer the term "exceptionalities" - they are truly the exception to the rule, in many ways. They do not learn the same way as others, nor do they share their learning in a typical fashion.

My students love to make, build, tinker, explore, and design. Sitting in a chair all day, writing, reading, or listening is not what inspires them to learn. Getting their hands on materials, building, tinkering, problem solving - that's what gets my kids excited to learn. When they are free to learn the way they learn best, the possibilities are truly endless!

My Project

I was first exposed to Cubelets at a conference this summer and was excited by the potential these robots hold for my students! These tech teaching tools can help my students learn to code, collaborate, problem solve, and be fully engaged in their learning.

These Cubelets will engage my exceptional thinkers in ways that will exceed even my own expectations.

Modular Robotics, which is the creator of Cubelets, provides an impressive array of support for teachers and students that are using Cubelets in education. With their support and my students exceptional minds, we can make curricular connections using robotics in highly engaging tasks!
