My Students

I teach a wide variety of eager, active 5- and 6-year olds. My students come from different backgrounds, ranging from low income to middle-class, traditional families, single parents, and extended family situations. They also come to me with varying amounts of background knowledge, most having attended Pre-K, while others have never been in school.

My kindergarteners are incredibly eager to learn, willing to work, and ready to succeed!

They deserve everything that I can give them--my time, abilities, and efforts.

My Project

Our society is rapidly changing. I am tasked with educating young learners and preparing them for jobs that have yet to be created. Technology is fast paced and ever changing, and my kindergarteners need an introduction in order to be prepared for the future.

Critical thinking skills are essential for today's learners.

They need to not only be taught basic information, but they have to learn how to learn, how to think, and how to solve problems. Coding is a prime way for children to practice reasoning and critical thinking. Basic coding shows them cause and effect and allows them to logically think about a desired outcome.

Ozobots will help students see their codes come to life. They will visually see the outcome of their written instructions. Coding games will further develop their young minds, challenging them to think logically about an outcome they desire. They will have to use forethought and reasoning. As they play these games, their logical and critical thinking skills will increase. And these skills are essential throughout life.
