My Students

My second-grade scholars come from different socio-economic backgrounds. They range between the ages of 7 and 8 years old and receive their education in an urban environment with a population of 43.4% Black, Non-Hispanic, 26.5% Hispanic, 24.4% White, Non-Hispanic, and 4.6% Multiracial. My school participates in the Federal Free School Lunch program where 100% of our scholars receive a nutritional meal every day. They come to school despite what they are going through and work hard to accomplish a set goal.

We are also one of few STEM schools in the school district that provides all of our scholars with an equal opportunity for innovation, engineering and design principles, and stewardship within the context of cross-curricular, authentic problem-based learning units.

My Project

Our K-3 team is rocking with Osmo! They have really been enjoying their time with making and breaking codes! Unfortunately, there are not enough Osmo games to go around. We have to share a lot of the materials that we have with others within our grade band. Generally, it's not a problem until we get deeply engaged in what we are doing. With these games, it will allow us to expand our students world of coding.

It takes a village to educate a child and this environment is the only opportunity for many of our scholars to explore the endless possibilities of STEM.

This is why these games are essential for these students to obtain. Investing in these scholars through STEM will really propel hem into the future. Funding this project will give ALL students a fighting chance at coding!
