My Students

My school is very diverse with over 950 students. Over 30% of our 4th and 5th graders qualify for gifted services. As a gifted education teacher, my main job is to constantly engage my students and foster their natural curiosity and inquisitive nature.

Their eyes light up when they walk in my room and see supplies set out for a hands-on investigation!

They love to build and try new ideas to solve a science or engineering problem. My students crave a challenging curriculum. They learn best by exploring with science tools and materials so they can better understand the science standards that I am teaching.

My Project

My students love hands-on learning, especially when they are working with robotics sets. I have an after-school robotics club for my 5th-grade students and they have so much fun building with the LEGO bricks, learning how to program the robots to accomplish certain tasks, and trying to accomplish a new challenge each week. They start asking me on the first day of school when the club will start.

We would love to have reliable technology that will last for many years!

Our current Mindstorms kits are very old and several died completely last year. It is frustrating when the students get really involved in programming and problem solving only to have the robot glitch and not work properly. We were so fortunate to get 2 new sets this year, but sharing them between everyone in the club was problematic as the older and newer sets use different software to program. Three more EV3 sets would allow us to have enough so that everyone could use the same robots and software.
