My Students

This year is the thirds year our school offers STEM as a class and students are always excited to design, build, collaborate and create things. I teach in a low-income Chicago school with almost 100% Hispanic population. I have been teaching at my school for 6 years and it has been all throughout my teaching career.

My students are very excited about anything that we learn.

Whenever we add learn new content or review things we have covered, they are so creative and think of amazing new inventions. I see about 700 students every week and all of them are so innovative and just eager to learn and do new things.

My Project

Students across all grade levels in my school have been learning how to program for few years now. It is an essential skill that helps students problem solve, think on the spot, engage with others and get ready for the future jobs.

Students would love to see their programmed code come to life, and these amazing robots can do just that.

I would love for my students to experience how the code they create themselves can actually make something move. It is an incredible technology that is so accessible for our students and can become a future for so many.
