My Students

My students are eager and very active, but they are excited to learn each and every day! My class consists of special education students, English​ language learners, speech students, and regular education students.

In my classroom, we strongly believe in working together and being kind to everyone.

Coding gives students the opportunity to work together collaboratively. With the way the world is heading it is key for students to know how to code. Many future jobs will involve skills that are not currently being taught in schools. These devices would allow my students to gain a much needed skill set for the future.

My Project

We recently attended the SLATE & learned about the importance of adding coding into the classroom. Currently, coding jobs are in high demand with all of the advanced technology arising each and every day. Computer science drives job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. Computing occupations are the number 1 source of all new wages in the U.S. and makeup​ over half of all projected new jobs in STEM fields, making Computer Science one of the most in-demand college degrees. And computing is used all around us and in virtually every field. It’s foundational knowledge that all students need. But computer science is marginalized throughout education. Only 35% of U.S. high schools teach any computer science courses and only 8% of STEM graduates study it. We need to improve access for all students, including groups who have traditionally been underrepresented. A majority of schools don’t teach computer science: 90% of parents want their child to study computer science, 40% of schools teach computer programing. Computer science is about logic, problem solving and creativity, critical thinking, and perseverance. Computer science is no longer vocations, it is foundational, if we expose it to them at a young age it isn’t as scary to them in the upper grades

After we learned the importance of incorporating STEM/Coding activities into the day we developed a plan of a way to fit it into our school day.

Many students don’t have access to these devices at home; therefore, providing them an experience at school is extremely beneficial for the students and their future. If we were able to receive funding for these devices students would be able to expand their coding knowledge. We have included a wide range of coding activities to meet the learning needs for all of our students.
