My Students

My students live in a medium-sized rural community in Western New York. Our school district is unique in that all grades, K-12, share a sense of community and collaboration being connected across four buildings in one large campus.

The elementary-level students in my computer-focused classroom are diverse learners with a mix of learning abilities.

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative, my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge. They truly thrive on working with technology and learning real-world skills in a tangible way.

My Project

In this technology-literate world, any interaction with technology will increase students' technological literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!

By donating to our project, you will help to create tomorrow’s out-of-the-box innovators.

The Dash and Dot robots encourage hands-on play and learning to make problem-solving and learning concrete and tangible as well as developing their creativity. You will be giving them tools to imagine and invent the future.

Used in conjunction with Wonder Workshop's Dash and Dot robots these accessories allow my students to expand their learning and give them the ability to creatively tackle collaborative challenges.
