My Students

My almost 600 students are culturally, ethnically, and academically diverse, coming from all walks of life. Many of the students I work with come from non-native English speaking families and a great number of students in our school come from low-income neighborhoods. I work with students with Autism, students who have learning disabilities and various other difficulties that affect their learning. Despite all the facts listed above, my students are eager to come to school, are motivated and hardworking. They persist through their struggles and many overcome them to make personal growth. They truly have enriched both my career, and my life, and I strive to do the same for them.

My Project

I am seeking to add Legos to my library program. There are a variety of uses that will allow students to be creative and problem solvers.

My students have been exploring the use of the Dash robots and found the Dash Draws challenge which requires specialty Lego pieces to complete.

With the pieces requested students can build an attachment for the robot that will allow it to "hold" a marker. Then they can program Dash to create a variety of drawings and designs. There have been quite a few students requesting to try this challenge and I would love to provide the opportunity for them to combine Computer Science and Art!
