My Students

My students are from a high-poverty, Title One school district where there is a lack of technology available or accessible to them. It has been my life goal to not only inspire my students to come to class eager and ready to learn, but to find that spark that will ignite their future as some have a lack of desire to even pass the fifth grade.

My desire in life is to help those students who do not want to even attend, do not like school or have no aspirations in life, to enjoying learning and ignite an interest that will propel them into college.

Scott Elementary School serves over six hundred students of incredibly diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students are second language learners (ELL’s) and their home languages are Spanish, Russian, Marshallese and others. Many are living in less than desirable home situations, have had severe trauma so school is a beacon of hope and stability in their chaotic lives. I want my students to learn they are worthy, intelligent and can become college graduates.

My Project

The OSMO Program is an award winning game system that will allow my students to learn coding through play and problem solving. There are many levels from beginner to advanced, so all of my students will be able to learn to code and solve the challenging puzzles at their own levels. I specifically chose this program because my students will be able to focus on their academics and it teaches logic and coding through challenging and fun puzzles. Also, new technology is a huge pull to interest students and will increase their creativity, problem solving, computer, mathematics, and literacy skills all through structured play.
