My Students

I love my students! The 48 students in my two classes are kind, curious, and possess drive and desire to do their personal best. They work hard every single day! In my classes, we value respect, hard work, and a strong sense of family. We are a family in my classroom.

My students are amazing and unique in their own way.

My goal is to teach them the skills necessary to become successful in every avenue of their lives from this day forward while smiling, laughing, and learning. We are diverse and excited and ready to learn. This group of gifted and amazing fourth graders is ready to keep growing and thriving.

My Project

This project is making the geek and nerd in me embrace and hold hands while skipping merrily down the street!

A Kano Harry Potter wand allows students to not only code but then use their coding to actually become a witch or wizard and physically manipulate their code with the wand on the screen!

How cool is that? Along with the wand I am also asking for a variety of books to add to my library on how to code in Scratch, as well as debugging, and coding safely online.

The following is a tribute to my love of DonorsChoose. Org with a twist on Miley Cyrus’ song The Climb (Enjoy)

I can almost see it

My students coding but

There's a voice inside my head saying

You'll never get funded,

Every dollar donated,

Every tweet that’s tweeted

Is a step in the right direction

My faith’s still shaky, but I

I’ve got to keep tryin’

Gotta keep my fingers crossed 🤞🏻

There's always gonna be another project

I'm always gonna wanna get it funded

Always gonna need more points and

Sometimes I'm gonna run out of time.

Ain't about how fast it’s funded (yes it is!)

Ain't about what's waiting on the other side

It's the kids!
