My Students

The students I work with for enrichment are enthusiastic learners who love to learn new ways of coding and expressing their creativity! I am a firm believer in providing each and every student with choices and enrichment opportunities so they can share their voice. We have a very diverse school with a Title 1 kindergarten program, and about 10% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Currently, small groups of students share my iPhone or my personal iPad in order to access different apps and coding platforms and I want to be able to provide access for more students!

The majority of the GT students I also work with are girls, and I want to continue to cultivate their interest in STEM fields while their engagement levels are still high.

These makers and creators have taken it upon themselves to teach younger students all they know about coding, augmented reality, and robotics. I need to provide them with more tools to learn and to teach others!

My Project

Four years ago, I was the first elementary teacher in our district to begin teaching students to code through Code.org, and my students were instantly addicted! My original group of students are now fourth graders and their desire to learn other means of coding and platforms increases each year.

My older students are coding mentors and role models for the younger kids.

They have become stakeholders in the education of the younger students, and want them to do well. These future innovators were the ones who researched the Botley robot, and they determined it would be a wonderful first step to our current coding program and as an introduction to robotics.
