My gifted students are intelligent, creative, unique individuals who love learning and technology. The majority of my students live in poverty and struggle on a daily basis with basic needs. They do not have access at home to the technology that most of us take for granted.
Many of my students have never considered careers in the fields of Engineering, Computer Programming, Science or Robotics.
I want to provide my students with learning experiences in these types of professions so they will understand that they have the ability to do and be anything they want.
The U.S. Department of Education describes the importance of STEM education to our society, “All young people should be prepared to think deeply and to think well so that they have the chance to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow. But, right now, not enough of our youth have access to quality STEM learning opportunities and too few students see these disciplines as springboards for their careers.” My goal is to create an environment for my gifted students where they can learn and develop these essential STEM skills.
My STEM Classroom does not have enough iPads for every student which makes it difficult when I stream interactive lesson content and for assessments.
I integrate technology into all aspects of learning to create engaging interactive lessons. My students need iPads to view and complete lesson content, for STEM research, fun assessment apps, coding and to program robots.
