My Students

This is a classroom of amazing students that come from a high poverty background. Currently, there are 22 ethnically diverse scholars who are trying their best to learn social skills while learning everything they need to know to be ready for 4th grade.

At over 90%, our school has the highest percentage of free and reduced lunch in a district of 23 elementary schools.

Most of my scholars have limited access to the internet and no access to educational technology. They deserve every opportunity for success they can be given.

My Project

When you donate to Project: Sphero, you know you will be donating to a great cause. The scholars that will benefit live in a low socioeconomic community with minimal access to technology.

As the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) lead in my building, I have seen first hand the benefit of Spheros in the hands of scholars.

Learning to code, learning about angles, how time, distance and speed effects where and how far the Sphero will travel, are all skills that will benefit my students in the future.

Having access to multiple Spheros in the classroom will also give scholars the chance to work with others in a team atmosphere and complete tasks such as block coding their robot, to navigate it's way through a maze, or engineering a bridge strong enough to be driven across. They will even be able to use building blocks, like Legos or K'Nex, to transport things from one area of the classroom to another.

Thank you so much for your consideration! The scholars in my class are deserving of any and all support you can give!
