My Students

As a STEM educator and a FIRST Robotics coach in a school that serves a high number of homeless families so I see that my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Even with the economic challenges they face, my students will not let that stop them from learning and growing.

They are excited about technology and learning new things.

Their excitement challenges me to create more technology-driven projects to drive their STEM/STEAM education. While they come from varied backgrounds, abilities, and cultures, they stand united in their desire to learn and work together!

My Project

We are requesting a REV expansion hub to add to my students' robot. These First Tech Challenge (FTC) building materials will enhance not only our FTC program but our school's robotics program as well. Expansion Hubs will enhance and multiply our team's resources so we can create better robots, reach more students, and involve new coaches. We are a second-year team in a low income school district and are looking to be able to have the necessary part to grow and compete. Our FLL team will be a feeder team for our new FIRST Tech Challenge team and the high school FIRST Robotics Competition team in our community.

"Get out there and improvise and take chances and don't be a perfectionist" ~Dave Brubeck.

Students who participate in my after-school robotics team have a more confident perspective and reach for computer science, engineering and technical career goals that otherwise would not have been an interest for them.
