My Students

As a STEM teacher in a Title 1 school, my students are faced with a multitude of challenges both in and out of the classroom. Unfortunately, the struggle with basic needs like shelter, food, and clothing has placed a heavy burden on the minds of a majority of the students. However, they all have big dreams of success, of going to college and becoming productive citizens.

Although my younger students have a strong desire to learn and are very hard working, a deficit they possess as a whole group is the background experiences with simple robotics and CODE.

It is my wish to provide my students with opportunities that will allow them the ability to stretch their thinking and challenge their problem solving skills.

My Project

The Lego Movie Maker Kit and various Lego accessories will be a wonderful addition to our K-5 STEM program. The Women of NASA Lego kit and the various colored building blocks will also provide me the ability to grab the girls' attention towards engineering and design.

Our students are a very creative group and I know these materials will provide them some additional opportunities to design and create animation through teamwork and problem solving.

These materials will also provide me the extra support I will need to model and teach the students about stop motion movie making. It will be a wonderful experience to see the final projects!
