My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges, both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are motivated, creative and highly interested in the STEM field.

They like to move, they love science and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and/or receive a free lunch, based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Students will gain coding experience using the DASH robot and accessories, and gain valuable STEM experiences using the Wonder Workshop Sketch Kit helps to express their creativity & develop critical thinking skills as they draw shapes, patterns, words, & more.

STEM and CODING experience will play a vital role in the lives of today's young students.

The items purchased through this project will help to inspire the young GIRLS and BOYS I teach to enter the vital STEM fields of the future.

For many of my students, this will be their first exposure to this type of technology. Please help me bring this exciting experience to the lives of the children in my class.
