My Students

My students are thoughtful and curious. They come to school ready to learn new things about the world around them. They are great kids with big dreams who look to see how they can apply their newfound knowledge for the betterment of their community.

They are ready to challenge stereotypes and show the world how much they can accomplish.

Our school is located in East Oakland and while my students face many challenges they do not let those challenges interfere in their quest for greatness. They work hard and push themselves to be better every day.

My Project

These materials are needed for the creation of our brand new Maker Space. We are excited for this Maker Space because we know that this space will ignite student's learning and help them discover new skills and passions.

Students will use the space to build STEAM skills such as building simple machines with LEGOs, using the design thinking process to test out different paper airplane models, learning how to knit and building and coding robots.

We need an iPad to use for coding programs, books to spark our students’ imaginations, yarn and knitting needles for knitting projects, a sewing machine and iron for sewing projects, building blocks for creating simple machines and other structures, duct tape for artistic creations and puzzles for students to develop their problem solving skills.

These activities will help build students’ academic skills, cooperation and creative thinking. We are so excited to see what creative discoveries our students will make in the year to come.
