I have been teaching for 30 years and feel fortunate to be able to do what I love. My goal is to prepare my students to be a successful and happy kindergartner. I believe in educating the whole child; social and emotional development is just as important as academics.
My kindergartners are a culturally diverse group of mixed interests and abilities and are very curious.
They love technology and enjoy hands-on experiences that incorporates the use of technology. They are learning letters and numbers and are eager to develop 21st century skills.
My goal is to provide students with an inspiring, challenging and engaging environment that creates opportunities for exploration through project-based learning.
Imagine the surprise on children's faces as they program a robot!
My students will learn the basics of coding as they program Dash to complete a variety of tasks. Dash guides kids of all experience levels through a library of in-app challenges to inspire tomorrow’s inventors.
"Coding is the new team sport for future tech leaders and innovators." Kids can watch their virtual coding turn into tangible learning experiences in real time as Dash, with its performance and multiple sensors, interacts with and responds to its surroundings.
In addition, I will use Wonder Workshops comprehensive curricular resources to help students practice computational thinking and 21st-century skills with Dash.
Thank you for helping me bring this life-changing experience to my students.
