My Students

My students are full of energy, excited to learn, and naturally inquisitive. They want to be engaged in the lessons, instead of being passive learners.

With STEAM/STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and Problem/Project-Based Learning (PBL) students are engaged and solving both real-life and fictional problems.

Students want to know what they do will matter, and they are our future problem solvers. In my classroom, you will see my students taking risks, and learning from both what works and what doesn't work. Mistakes are not only welcome, but they are also expected, and we all learn from them!

My school has one thousand diverse students coming from different socioeconomic statuses, including many students living below poverty.

My Project

Innovation is a word students often hear, but seldom have time during the school day to practice innovation.

My students are given this opportunity to learn about engineering, computer science (coding), circuits, automation, and design and modeling to encourage them to practice innovation.

Through Makerspace, Innovation Lab Space, and STEM project based learning like Shark Tank, Adventure Island, The Amazing Race Coding Edition, Cardboard Arcade challenge, and engineering challenges, my students are given a space where they can create, collaborate, and think critically. The materials provide my students with a wide range of resources, both next-gen technology (Merge Cube, virtual reality headset, Ozobot, Battlebots, Sphero, and Harry Potter Coding Wand) and low tech materials (Snapcircuits and Chibitronics) allowing them to tinker, explore, build, and practice innovation.
