My Students

My students are an incredible group of diverse and creative learners! They are willing to work hard, collaborate, and try out new things. They are an active and engaging group who seek out new learning opportunists.

My students are full of enthusiasm and are always eager to learn.

I love being the teacher who gives them a strong foundation through meaningful learning activities. It is my desire to give all students the fundamentals to be successful not only in my classroom this year, but throughout their school years.

My Project

Students will use Bee-Bots in unplugged coding activities. They will learn procedural instructions by creating grids for their Bee-Bots to follow. This will be integrated into all content areas through different activities.

Hands-on coding helps students understand the content behind computer science.

My job is to prepare my students with jobs that haven’t even been created yet! These Bee-Bots and docking station will help provide them with the tools they need for the future. Coding is the job of the future!

These Bee-Bots will help my kindergarten students start coding. It will be a fun, hands-on way to teach coding! I think it’s so important to start early. These Bee-Bots will allow my students to prepare for their future using simple coding.
