My Students

My students are taking Principles of STEM and Robotics and attending an after school STEM program. Although my students come from a variety of backgrounds, including a large portion of socioeconomically disadvantaged students, the hands-on experience keeps them engaged and learning.

One of my goals as a STEM educator is to integrate the STEM field throughout various topics of study.

This involves looking at how STEM impacts other areas of life: history, civics, art, anti-bullying, social-emotional well being, and more. In order to minimize the effects of social distancing, we are looking for ways to keep my students engaged in real-world applications of STEM.

The STEM field is largely geared towards men, so it is my desire to create an environment that encourages young women to be involved with and successful in STEM. Through innovative projects and STEM awareness, I am hoping to balance the ratio of male to female students in STEM fields. With such a high percentage of EL students and low socioeconomic students, laboratory experience and hands-on learning is an excellent way to enrich their education.

My Project

These whiteboards are designed to promote group work and collaboration in the classroom. Too often students complete work independently without the opportunity for collaboration with their peers. These whiteboards will allow students to work out problems, sketch ideas, and communicate their thoughts in a group setting. Further, the large size of these whiteboards will allow the students to present their work to their classmates, further building communication skills.

These whiteboards will promote relationship skills following the SEL core competencies.

According to the SEL site, "Relationship skills: The abilities to establish and maintain healthy and supportive relationships and to effectively navigate settings with diverse individuals and groups. This includes the capacities to communicate clearly, listen actively, cooperate, work collaboratively to problem solve and negotiate conflict constructively." These whiteboards will serve that purpose and allow my students to work together, build communication skills, and listen actively while solving problems.
