My Students

I teach the most exciting grade “Kindergarten”. My students are energetic, funny, and a wonderful group who just need some love and support for their chance to succeed. These are inner-city students who are diverse in their backgrounds, abilities, and opportunities. They are eager to learn and willing to soak up all I can provide for them. These students face challenges more than they should.

It is my goal to provide my students with a creative, efficient, and effective learning environment.

My Project

Coding gives early learners the opportunity to explore early coding concepts, while developing problem solving skills, critical thinking, collaboration and social and emotional skills.

These programs will help my students start early coding but also will foster team building when they work together to solve problems.

I would love to have these in my classroom for daily use!

Osmo has great programs for early coding and simple enough that kindergartners can learn and use in the classroom. Coding doesn't have to be so difficult.

Square Panda is an interactive program that builds confident and fluent readers. It brings educational value to "playing a game" on tablets. The program differentiates instruction for the students and is a great tool for student success.

With Bee Bots, we use floor mats with square tiles. Each square has a different picture in it. Students are able to practice skills using interactive mats for reading, math, science, and social studies. The students have to code the Bee Bot to get to their destination. Learning to code is challenging but yet rewarding.
