My Students

My students are curious, creative STEAM learners and innovators! They have absolutely taken on this third year resource class at our elementary school by showing their talents for science, technology, engineering, art and math. Our STEAM program started from the ground up in September 2017 when the students walked through the door on the first day of school with excitement for what STEAM holds. We've been making steady progress in building our STEAM program for our K-5 students through generous donations.

My STEAM students are engaged through opportunities that allow for both critical thinking and imaginative thought.

They excel with design challenges, robotics and coding, and in imagining new concepts.

My Project

K-2 students are developing their computer science understanding and skills at a much faster rate than students of similar age just a few years ago. Coding is both an easy and fun way to generate educational opportunities that coincide with other areas of curricula, whether reading, math, science, or social studies.

It is my intent to give my K-2 students the experience of coding and computer science they need to build upon for other skills like critical-thinking and problem-solving.

Learn to Code! Ladybug offers young students the chance to engage in a kinesthetic, unplugged manner that mimics similar online coding occasions.
