My Students

Our district team travels from school to school to teach all secondary Gifted and Talented students in a low-income district with little funding. The students come from many different backgrounds. We live in a military community. These students are focused and bright. They are determined to learn.

Gifted students are tomorrow's leaders, inventors, problem-solvers and creators.

Providing them with opportunities to think critically and collaborate is essential for their success and gives them opportunities to be more college and career ready!

My Project

Help engage my students so they can learn STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skill sets that will challenge and expose them to a progressive curriculum while also empowering students through art.

The LittleBits set allows students to become creators: They hold the power to giving everyday objects new superpowers and are only limited by their imaginations.

Secondary Gifted and Talented students across the district will turn students into creators. Through an electronics and circuitry curriculum, students work to make circuits that serve a purpose. Through this programming option, our students will be able to design and engineer wireless remote controlled vehicles, classroom doorbells, an invention that dumps confetti on classroom visitors, a Rube Goldberg invention for a marble run, and anything a student can dream up! Our students are begging for supplies to make their ideas come to life. I have seen these supplies truly transform classrooms and the way students view their educations. I want that for our students!

The LittleBits set will allow students to create, play, remix, then share their inventions with the world while building on science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics skills.
