My Students

Technology and Education have a closer relationship when connected with vibrant, outgoing, inquisitive students. Our students strive to meet STEAM and STEM curriculum that will enhance their future. We push to engage students in hands-on STEM learning outside the classroom. Our students are eager, energetic and very hard working. Our programs help them learn skills and talents through goal-setting and determination. Our students live in an area where we have seventy percent receiving free or reduced-price lunch due to living under the poverty level.

In addition to our economically disadvantaged population, we serve a large group of Military students and vast array of ethnic backgrounds.

This melting pot of stellar students transforms our school into a warm close knit community. We have the greatest students; they are simply looking for amazing opportunities.

My Project

A student of mine is actually the one that introduced me to the concept of a pancake robot. What a wonderful way to incorporate all elements of STEAM into such a simple task. Teaching students how to use this gadget, along with everything else that comes along, will surely entice them to absorb so much of this experience. This is what every teacher dreams about in a lesson, real world application connected with hands-on learning!

Our school proudly educates military families, economically disadvantaged students, and students from an array of ethnic backgrounds.

Each student brings their own experiences and we embrace the knowledge they posses. Thank you for reading our request.
