My Students

My students are cool and creative, exciting and exceptional, giving and grateful! Although many live in urban challenging neighborhoods, our school gives them a sense of community and a family. They are proud of their diversity of culture, religion, and ancestry. Many struggle with disabilities and learning English, but all of them try their best and exceed expectations, work hard, and care for one another. They are intellectually curious and open to trying new things and taking academic risks. Simply stated, they deserve the best!

My Project

My students love to unleash their creativity to design projects using Hummingbird robotics kits. My students were the recipient of grants of Hummingbird Robotics kits but have been limited in their ability to use them because the chrome books that we have do not have the capacity to support the program. In addition to using the MacBook for Hummingbird kits, a MacBook would help the students to use photo, video and sound editing software in connection with our project-based learning. The Chromebook lacks a hard drive so the addition of the MacBook would allow students to store their projects on the hard drive. In summary, MacBooks will let students creativity soar!
