My Students

Our school is a Title I school, and all of the students qualify for free lunch. I want to be able to provide all the essential resources for them to be successful. Many of them don't have materials at home to extend their learning and engage with their families on such things like math games or science writing/drawing.

My students are enthusiastic learners, and when they have the right materials, they are able to accomplish an amazing amount of learning!

My Project

In our learning classroom, we focus on growing our minds and our hearts through many forms of community and collaborative activities and these various books are great ways to incorporate this focus through literature and STEAM!

My students are truly 21st-century digital learners- yet this does not exempt them from building their acceptance of each other's differences and the inclusion of one another's diverse strengths as they collaborate in our learning community.

We would love to be able to attend and participate in the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

These books and activities would allow my students to explore the world of computer science and discover that it is an opportunity designed for all regardless of their diverse backgrounds and experiences.
