My Students

My students are brilliant, engaging and curious individuals. I have 3rd-5th grade gifted students. They love the arts, music, science, and have inquisitive minds. I am continually amazed by their ingenuity and desire to learn about the world around them.

Having hands on, group learning activities like robotics help us in many ways.

My program is regional and we serve students from three different schools. Allowing students to collaborate and problem solve together is one of the important ways students learn, and helps us build a stronger community.

My Project

We are educating students for jobs that don't yet exist. This is especially true in the fields of STEM, digital technology and robotics. Students need hands-on learning experiences in the classroom, that integrate math, science, and technology together. Innovation and inquiry are natural abilities for gifted students. We are looking to fund computer coded programmable robots in the SAIL classroom. The goal is to have enough robots to allow students as much hands-on experience as possible. It is vital for students to learn to collaborate, to work together and share ideas. Having robotics accessible in the classroom for hands-on, group learning will only make for a stronger connection.
