Personal Letters to my Students

My Students

Most of my students come from low-income families. Some of them have all their supplies at the beginning of the year but for the most part, the school or their teachers supply the students. I have written some grants in the past to help my students get some excellent opportunities that they would normally not get. We are on the edge of a farming community so we also have migrant students. My students are amazing! They are just waiting for their chance to make their mark on the world.

I teach an intro to engineering and intro to architecture class to 7th graders.

I also coach two robotics teams; one is an all girls team with First Lego league, the second is Vex Robotics. They love doing project-based learning and learning new things.

My Project

My goal is to send 140 cards to all my students. Some of them are home alone, some are now the primary care giver for their youngers siblings. They are scared and worried and I want to encourage them. Due to Covid 19, they are all home and struggling to manage mentially with the changes. I would like to send them words of encourgment like I would in class every day, but in had written notes. Their world has changed so much. They were so social in middle school and now they have little acess to their firends.
