My Students

We are a curious bunch of scholars. We come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of life experiences. Many of us receive free or reduced-price lunch, which is based on our family's low income.

We are always eager to contribute to our classroom environment.

We like exploring, asking questions, and using our ideas to work on projects, experiment with materials, build structures, and present our knowledge. We love to figure out how things work, research interesting topics, and create new designs.

My Project

With the continued advancement of technology, it is up to us to provide our youngest scholars with technology-rich learning environments. My students need to have access to interactive materials and devices that help spark their curiosity and creativity with technology and coding. This project will help me provide a strong foundation in computer science by giving us a class set of iPads.

My little scholars will be engaged in researching, problem-solving, designing, and connecting on an international level.

With the assistance of Ipads, my students will be exposed to diversity and will be able to strengthen their fact-finding and critical thinking skills.

They will learn to collaborate with their peers in order to create codes, document their learning, and present information. They will learn to plan, create, test, and then make changes to their plan. My little creators will be using higher-order​ thinking and communication skills in all aspects. Having Ipads will allow me to further enrich my talented students.
