I love teaching Technology and Engineering Education in a diverse and exciting classroom. My students enjoy using math and science skills in practical activities creating things that improve everyday life.
My students look forward to moving on from high school to continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program, many of them looking toward the military to pay for their college.
My kids love to learn new things and are eager to get their hands dirty with real-life projects. Obtaining funding for our projects is often an issue.
Our students are largely low income and come from an urban environment where there is a significant amount of cultural, ethnic and racial diversity.
I teach students in grades 9-12 at in a diverse and exciting classroom. Students in my class are excited to explore the world of engineering as a possible career field in the future. My students are inventive and creative in solving real-world problems and are hungry to learn new things.
We want to take part in the Freedom Pen Project and connect to the soldiers and airmen living in our community. We were talking about another school that participates in this and wanted to join in the efforts for a second year.
The Freedom Pen Project sends hand-made pens to service members across the globe.
Our students will make pens to be donated to a National Guard Unit from our home state that has just been sent overseas.
We will make pens with our students after school and send the pens as a care package for the holidays. We want to promote student engagement while giving us a project to connect with our community.
