My Students

My students walk through the door each morning with happy, smiling faces. They are always excited to greet me and each other. At first glance, you see happy children in a nice school building ready to learn.

Take a closer look, however, and you'll notice the stark differences.

Some of my students arrive well-groomed in matching outfits with new backpacks and lunch boxes. Many of my students, on the other hand, arrive in clothes are that are too small with uncombed hair and shoes that are falling apart. Their backpacks are patched up from last year with the hope that they will last through another year.

They are smiling and happy for very different reasons than their peers. These students are thrilled to receive a free breakfast and lunch. They are glad to be in a warm, safe place for the day where they have access to books, paper, markers, and pencils.

Daily, we strive to overcome this disparity in our student population to achieve the common goal of LEARNING.

My Project

We are bringing robotics to our elementary school for the first time! We cannot wait to engage students in the world of science and engineering through hands-on robotics.

Our goal is to reach those students who learn best through hands-on experiences and who will benefit from being part of a team.

We currently have one VEX IQ Construction Kit through a grant, but our school has nearly 600 students. It is recommended that we only have 6-8 students working on each kit. We need another VEX IQ Robotics Construction Kit so that we can form both primary and intermediate teams and reach more students.
