My Students

I teach Exceptional Children's class in a rural community. I work with kids from 2nd grade through 4th grade. I currently have 17 kids on my roster that come through my doors daily. Each child is different with individualized strengths and weaknesses. I am blessed to get the opportunity to be inspired by them every day.

My class is a diverse group of students who have a love of learning.

It is so exciting to see them succeed and show pride in their work. They are a hands on group of amazing students that learn while they work. They need to see how exciting learning can be!

My Project

Coding works all parts of brain. My students would love to have an exciting and creative way to learn key foundational skills like problem solving, basic sequencing, and following directions. Having a fun and interesting way to 'think' through problems would allow my students to learn in a way that surprises them and is different every time.

My Autistic students are drawn to computer science.

Autistic students are more comfortable with the logical, predictable and visual aspects of coding. Having a Dash and Dot Robot available for them will give them a desire to use high level thinking skills and will show them that they do not need to not shy away from new concepts.
