My Students

My goal is to have lessons that are relevant to current technology and engaging. Students use computer science to tell fun, interactive stories, make video games, make music videos and much more. Each lesson has a video that students watch. Students are able to code their own project.

We use beginner level lessons for 6th grade and gradually get more challenging in 7th and 8th grade.

Students enjoy working at their own pace and are thrilled to see a program work.

Many students are from low-income households and do not own their own headphones.

My Project

Heavy duty headphones will enhance our students' learning experience. We have students get frustrated when the old headphones fall apart and have poor sound quality. Students could bring their own headphones, but many are unable to afford them.

Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology.

Some of the headphones we have only work in one ear or have static. We have a classroom that has 30 computers and we have 15 quality headphones. We need 15 more good quality headphones that would last for years. Students would use these headphones to use the website and

This donation would help our computer classes be more fun and less frustrating.
