My Students

"Teach the children well and let them lead the way," this line is from Greatest Love of All by Michael Masser and Linda Creed. And I firmly believe what the song says. In this day and age of technology, it is still vital that children have the opportunity to use technology on a regular basis. We need to teach children strong technological skills because they will, one day, lead the way in this technological age.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

They also have diverse ability levels. We are in a large school district that has been severely hit by budget cuts. We have very few supplies and there is definitely no money to be spent "extras." My class is full of curious students who love to learn through hands-on lessons. They are bright and enjoy learning. They need exposure to lessons that cannot be taught using just the materials supplied by our district.

My Project

STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) is a vital area of study in this technological age. It is impossible to expose students to this important field without the materials to enable hands-on lessons. Elementary students do not get a lot of exposure to STEAM lessons and projects.

My students will have first hand, concrete practice in STEAM through the use of the LEGO WeDo 2.0 (robotics and coding) and Simple and Powered Machines sets (engineering).

These sets will ignite their interest in STEAM while they practice planning, problem-solving, teamwork, and organizing. They will learn about engineering and design by building the models. Students will practice robotics, coding, and programming by using the program that makes the models move, make noises, light up, and much more.
