My Students

As Barack Obama states, "Computers are going to be part a big part of our future ... and that future is yours to shape." As educators, it is our responsibility to prepare our students to be productive members of the twenty-first century in the field of computer science.

I teach a dynamic bunch of enthusiastic and creative fourth-grade students who will prepare for a bright future.

My biggest challenge is having technology resources for all children to prepare them for jobs in computer science. My goal is to try to develop a small set of classroom Chromebooks in my classroom, one Chromebook at a time. The purpose of having this Chromebook is to teach computer coding using the Hour of Code Website and others. First, I want to teach my students to read and write code with a computer and then, I plan to take it a step further using robots. I teach a multicultural fourth-grade class in a Title I school with limited resources. By the end of the year, I expect to see my students' reading, math, science, and social studies levels to rise.

My Project

Michael Jordan states, "I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times. I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." As teachers who teach computer science, we are teaching children life lessons and how to get back in the game even after missing at multiple attempts. Lots of times in the classroom students will say, " I cannot do it” or “It does not work." It is imperative for students to learn how to program because it teaches them very important life skills like perseverance. My classroom is in need of a Chromebook to be used for computer science and STEM activities. Using coding websites can teach children about innovation. Children learn through experimentation and trial and error. Students who learn how to program become teachers, thinkers, and innovators as they solve real world problems in STEM.

This school year, the NYC Public Schools believes, "Every child has one shot at an excellent education.

It's up to us to make sure they get it. Let's shape the next generation of New York's voices and minds. Let's transform dreamers to doers. Let's empower students in every neighborhood on their path to success as we pave the way for our Equity and Excellence for All initiative in computer science. " Let's provide my students with the best possible resources such as, a chromebook so that they can strive to achieve their academic best in all areas as they prepare for college and career readiness. I am going to end my project proposal with this last quote by Helen Keller. Helen Keller states, "Alone we can so little; together we can do so much."
