My Students

I am a technology teacher. We are a proud Title I school that is STEM certified through the state of Georgia. As part of STEM, we have introduced our students to coding. It hasn't been easy and not always fun, but we have always learned.

It has been amazing to see the looks of joy when students begin to grasp coding.

The students at my school are in grades Kindergarten through 5th. They love to spend time with technology and have learned a lot this year, even through the struggles of the pandemic. I love being able to introduce the concept of coding and programming to our students. I can't even begin to explain the excitement of the students when they begin to understand coding. This is a difficult concept for even me! But students at my school persevere and work hard to problem solve through the coding activities I have been able to introduce. Coding goes a long way in helping students learn how to problem solve.

My Project

For years, I have taught students at our school about Lego EV3 Mindstorm robots. They have learned how to code and build programs with this robot. Now Lego has released a new robot called Spike Prime. I believe Spike Prime will more effectively engage students with an easier to understand coding process.

Our students need to stay on the forefront of learning about robotics and new coding programs.

Lego's Spike Prime will allow students to create, build, and code with the most up to date technology. The curriculum used with Spike Prime will also touch upon standards that students are learning about in the core subjects of Math and Science.
