My Students

Students come to my class daily wondering what we will be doing today. They love to get their hands on the engineering and technology tools and concepts that we are learning.

50% of our students live at or below the poverty level, and many come from single parent families.

School data shows that we are gaining more economically disadvantaged students each year, and we are currently not receiving Title I funds to support them. Our student population is pretty diverse with about 30% of our students being white, 30% being Hispanic, 30% being African-American, 4% Asian, 4% mixed race, and the other 2% representing other cultural backgrounds. These students thirst to learn about skills that they might not otherwise get to experience and our classroom mission is to provide these learning opportunities.

In my classroom we use robots, computers, and everyday items to teach concepts in engineering, the engineering design process, AutoCAD, and other topics of interest to students. Our goal is to provide students with a head start on high school courses that they might find interesting and perhaps help guide them to career interests if college is not in their future.

My Project

Students in my class are able to be creative while learning about different technology and engineering principles. As an example with the Cricut machine that we just got, our robotics team will be able to use the supplies to create their posters for presentation at our robotics competition. The Circuit Playground will allow us to experiment with circuits and programming to see how microcontrollers work in the real world.

Engaging students in learning that impacts their future and real world applications is key in a class where technology and engineering are the emphasis.

Getting these materials in their hands will allows us to continue to grow their knowledge and skills to be tomorrow's innovators and inventors.
