My Students

My classroom is full of amazing children who are loving and truly care about each other. Each day, my students aspire to do better than they have in the past. They love to learn and grow, and best of all, to show us what they have learned, whether it is academic skills or social skills.

As a teacher in a low-poverty school, I work hard every day to ensure that my students know that they are loved and appreciated.

To many of my students, school is a second home, and I strive to make sure that they enjoy all the time they spend with myself and their peers. In addition to making sure that my students have positive interactions with me throughout their day, I also focus on helping them to have positive social interactions with all of their peers. The positive relationships that we are working to build will help support their educational careers.

My Project

As a teacher, it is my responsibility to ensure that I am preparing my students for their future. Right now, their future can be absolutely anything- even careers and jobs that haven't been created yet! Since we are preparing them for so many possibilities, we need to create opportunities in which they can try new things, and experiment with trial and error. These Dash Robots will allow my students to work on many different skills, including teamwork, problems and solutions, coding, programming, along with many others!

Computer programming is a skill that will continue to be needed throughout our world.

As my first grade students learn to be confident with their programming skills, and with using technology, they will be better prepared for their futures.
