My Students

My student population is uniquely diverse in the DFW area. We have many nationalities, cultures, and abilities in our charter school. Being a charter school, our students choose to come to our STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) based school. We are a Title I school with students that exemplify how to be the best of the best. Many of our students are on free or reduced price lunches.

If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we must teach in a way they can learn." -Unknown

The students that I work with are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative. My students are always on the go and love learning in new and different ways. Each day my students come into my class eager about the day and like to spend time learning and exploring together. I teach coding, technology applications, and enrichment classes. All students benefit at my school and there are no limitations from my gifted to most challenged students.

My Project

My school is one of few schools that offer coding as a choice for our students to have in their schedule in the elementary level. My young students are excited to come to my room because I have all the fun toys that help them understand what coding is all about.

Computer programming is a field that is in need of people to join in the upcoming years!

My students have 1 cubetto and it is so popular that having another one will allow more students to use this item. In my room, my students work in centers using different items to help them understand more about coding rather then just using the computers. I am also asking for some batteries (juice) to help all these toys run in my room.
