My Students

I have exceptional students who have a contagious enthusiasm for learning! As their teacher, I want to provide opportunities that will prepare them for the 21st century. Collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem solving are engaging competencies that inspire and motivate my students to go above and beyond!

My school is made up of over 90% free and reduced price lunch.

The students don't always have access to resources, and I want to help bridge that gap. I want to do everything I can to create a contagious enthusiasm for learning that will inspire and motivate students to be all that they can be!

My Project

My students are going to fall head over heels when they meet Botley the robot. They are going to dive right into computer programming and learn the basics of computer programming! The learning doesn't stop there because this amazing resource includes accessories that foster advanced skills, too! Students will be able to build obstacle courses that include falling dominoes, a swinging hammer, a rotating gate and more. There are also 40 coding cards that will challenge my students to think critically and solve problems.

Learning coding at a young age makes kids better thinkers and communicators which are skills that will help them in the future.

Teaching students to program is a skill that can serve them well in a technology based world. These little robots are going to highly engage my students and serve as an innovative resource that will add to their learning experience. My students are up for the challenge and can't wait to take their critical thinking and problem solving skills to the next level. They are ready to meet Botley and journey into the world of computer programming!
