My Students

I have the privilege of teaching at three Title I schools that have diverse populations of students from all over the world. My students enjoy reading, project-based learning activities, robotics and being creative. I have the unique opportunity to teach Horizons, a gifted class at these schools. My students shine when I bring LEGO bricks or electronic kits into a lesson about animals, critical thinking, or problem-solving​ skills. With our students' economic backgrounds, they don't get many opportunities at home to interact with materials to encourage creative thinking.

My Project

The Outbreak Alert: Engineering a Pandemic Response kit is a great resource to use to teach students about what a Biomedical Engineer would do. Students will explore how to prepare for outbreaks of a highly contagious diseases. During this unit students will use the Engineering Design Process to design an antiviral to stop a newly discovered virus.

This outside the box unit will challenge my students develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve a real world problem.

Along with this unit, I plan to develop partnerships with with my districts high school medical engineering program. My class will Skype with high school instructors to learn more about medical engineering.

This is a great activity to expose my students of a STEM field that is not as knowledgeable in elementary schools!
