My Students

My four hundred and fifty kindergarten through fifth grade elementary students create a diverse community of learners with learners from many different cultural, socioeconomic and language backgrounds. Over sixty-five percent of my students come from non-native English speaking families with many arriving in the U.S. for the first time. Our student population includes many high-needs learners and over ninety percent of our student population qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch due to the families' low socioeconomic status.

Despite the challenges my students endure, they truly enjoy coming to school and learning.

They work hard and have a positive attitude. I strive to foster that enjoyment and create meaningful learning experiences for each of my students.

My Project

My students have been learning to code and wish to advance in the field of robotics. An iPad will assist with usage in our robotics center and in STEM club. Our children can use the iPad to create coded projects using Spheros, Ozobots, and Dash and Dot robots that we currently have. An iPad will also offer the opportunity to expand our skills by using additional apps that are only available on the Apple operating system.

Having an iPad in the Library will help students of all ages on many different levels including developing and strengthening computer science, collaboration, and literacy skills.

The iPad will provide the students with the opportunity to use their higher-level thinking skills to program, create videos, and interact with the world around them. All we need is an iPad and we are on our way to creative, fun, and meaningful learning experiences!
