My Students

A math classroom that challenges, engages, and inspires my 8th graders has always been my goal. My students are kind and respectful but not perfect; they are equal parts goofy and intense.

Our classroom is hands-on, tech-infused, and chock full of personality!

On any given day, students might be working out math on their white board tables, collaborating and debating with classmates, exploring rich tasks, and using iPads to record video, graph data, and model with equations. We THINK deeply, we PERSEVERE through failed attempts, we DO math.

My Project

Every Wednesday is Coding Wednesday for my students. What starts as an introduction into STEM concepts and careers progresses into learning coding and robotics. Currently we have a Jimu robot and 2 Junior Botball Wallaby robots. Groups of students this past year programmed the robots to complete various challenges in our Robot Battles. This year I am looking to expand our collection of robots and thereby expand our coding opportunities.

Last year’s Robot Battles were amazing, but more robots = more amazing!

Student teams will be able to build and code the robot of their choice using the language(s) that best scaffold their learning. Best of all, the logic, focus, persistence, and problem-solving skills acquired throughout this process can be applied EVERYWHERE.
