My Students

My students are full of energy, excited to learn, and naturally inquisitive. They want to be engaged in the lessons, instead of being passive learners.

With STEAM/STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and Problem/Project-Based Learning (PBL) students are engaged and solving both real-life and fictional problems.

Students want to know what they do will matter, and they are our future problem solvers.

My school has one thousand diverse students coming from different socioeconomic statuses, including many students who are homeless or living in poverty.

My Project

Imagine walking into your computer class, and instead of the teacher lecturing or giving you an online assignment, you actually get to build and code your own computer!

With project based learning, students can build their own electronics, discover how to program a computer, and get creative with coding using Boolean Box and SnapCircuit Kits.

Students will learn introductory coding on Scratch, move to Python and Java and build electronic circuits at their own pace! The batteries will be used with the SnapCircuits kits to teach students more about how circuits work. The external DVD player will be used to show different "Hollywood" video clips to help the students decide careers they may want to explore. With the current news about hacking elections, credit card hacks, and protecting our personal and national security, many of our students are preparing for careers that will use coding / computer science. The students will be learning real world challenges by engaging with these problems in the classroom!
