My Students

My students are active learners. They are digital learners who crave different tools to help with their educational process. They learn best by using hands-on materials to learn and discover.

We believe that every student who walks through our doors should be given every opportunity to learn and grow.

Giving my students a strong foundation is such an important way to get their educational careers started on the right path. I hope to make a difference for each of my students by finding new ways to get them excited about learning.

My Project

My students love learning about different STEM concepts. Earlier this year we started learning about different kinds of robots. My students started discussing different kinds of robots in our world. My students discovered that robots are machines capable of carrying out simple or complex tasks and they can be used to help make tasks more simplistic for humans.

I would like to have some real life examples of robots to use in the media center so that my students can use these examples of inventions others have created when they are designing and building their own robots.

The Echo Dot can help students understand how robots can help us with simple tasks with just the sound of our voices. The robotic vacuum can help them understand how robots can be programmed to help us with tasks to make our world a cleaner place. Thanks for any support you can send our way.
