My Students

In my classroom, you will find 17 smiling faces who have a true zeal for learning. As you can imagine, putting that many 5 and 6-year-olds in a room together can get quite loud.

If you walked by our door at any given moment of the day you would see children engaged in various activities helping them develop their craft as a student to become lifelong learners.

Our classroom welcomes parents and fellow teachers in the hope that we help inspire their love of learning also!

My Project

Learning to code is a valuable skill for children of any age. My kindergarteners love the novelty and excitement of robots. The children talk to them as though the robots are alive! A Botley robot, challenge set, and accessory set would help my children learn not only coding but teamwork and perseverance.

I have the challenging job of preparing my students for future jobs that don’t even exist yet!

I want to provide my students with a variety of experiences to build their knowledge base. These materials will help my students access coding at a basic level without any screen time.
