My Students

My students fit into two categories: military families or economically disadvantaged. My students deal with so many issues today. Out of 22 students, 11 students are connected to the military, some are separated from parents due to unaccompanied tours and 1/3 are economically disadvantaged.

This year we have truly embraced project based learning in the classroom.

Their faces light up and the energy changes when it is time to work on our projects. It's as though they come alive. They talk, laugh, and share ideas. I have noticed a true engagement in the classroom this year. Even the most shy and quiet students contribute during projects.

My Project

Today's students learn in the 21st century. Robots and coding help advance them in today's world.

Dash excites the students when they write the code for the robot.

Coding helps prepare them for the future. Dash is exciting and hands on learning. They don't even realize when they are learning when they write code. Writing code uses both sides of the brains. They are being both logical and creative all in one activity.

So many of my students are choosing technology based fields for their future careers. Having a robot they can program gives them an idea of technology careers they may envision for their future.
