As a teacher at a low-income/high poverty area, my students are faced with both good and challenging situations. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. All the students at my school want a chance to enhance and reach for the stars.
I want my students to have a great advantage in education.
Many of them are being raised in foster care, single-parent homes, or with a close relative. The demographics in the areas where they live are not conducive to acceptable learning. When my students walk in my door, I want them to identify their exceptional characteristics, develop positive self-esteem, and feel they are cherished. I want them to know that my classroom is a heartfelt, inspiring, and encouraging environment where creativity is encouraged through self-expression and imagination.
My students want to experience their learning using hands-on activities. When I provide an atmosphere of involvement, their learning increases tremendously. Your donation will help give us the materials to make great thinkers and learning fun.
Technology and coding is an up and coming field in education. There are so many programs designed especially for our younger students, but we need the materials to help bring coding to life and encourage real-life experiences. If we want our students to gain experience with technology and coding, we need to begin giving students these experiences early.
Code-A-Pillars are designed for our younger learners .
They are made with little hands and young learners in mind. Code-A-Pillars can be used to teach the coding process by pushing buttons to make to code-a -pillars go. They can be use the skills that they learn from coding these mini robots for years to come.
