My Students

My students love a good challenge. They are highly curious, gifted and talented third and fifth grade girls and boys at several schools in my district. Hungry for information and challenging activities, these students need STEM challenges different from what they receive in the regular classroom. They need to be encouraged and motivated to think critically and solve problems that may have more than one solution.

My students need problem-solving opportunities to feed their curiosity and increase critical thinking ability.

Therefore, I try to provide them with challenging learning opportunities.

My Project

My Gifted and Talented students love challenging activities and project-based learning, as well as hands-on learning, invention, and collaborative learning. Using robotic projects motivate and encourage students to work together with big ideas in mind.

Students will learn with hands-on experience to create, explore, and program their own projects.

This allows me to enrich our GT curriculum with state of the art innovated learning that all my students get excited about.

My students amaze me how technology comes so easy for them. I want to provide my students with the opportunity to explore more of the computer science world and open doors for their creative minds to extend beyond that of their regular classroom.
