I need to finance the cost of traveling to the Pathfinders Institute, including airfare, lodging, and meals and the Introducing Python with Robotics course!
My students come from diverse backgrounds and cultures from high financial need to those who are not in need. My school doesn't qualify for Title I services, even though a percentage of my students qualify for some financial assistance. I teach in a suburban school in Texas. My students are very excited learners, willing to jump in and learn new things.
I teach in a relatively new school with a beautiful environment for learning, but my students are interested in what is out there and what they will be using when they leave the classroom.
Therefore, I want to encourage STEM careers and learning excitement through cooperative work environments. I also want to help raise and educate my students in their personal financial literacy building on a classroom economy. I am educating our future leaders, workers, and professionals and want to give them every advantage. Through computer science, I can help them open doors to a successful future! Help me to make them successful students ready for the world outside of our classroom!
I am excited to jump start my learning with Python and Robotics!! Through the intensive 3 days of training at the Pathfinders Institute in Rhode Island, I will be able to effectively implement robotic coding using python in my school and classroom. This will take my students to the next step in their coding education and push them to achieve real life coding skills and goals they have told me about in class.
As a dedicated educator, I am always looking to advance and improve in my skills and knowledge so that I can continue to facilitate meaningful, authentic experiences for our students that continue to push their thinking.
I have no doubt that the winter Pathfinders in Rhode Island will further push me to another level of expertise that will lead to positive and lasting impacts for my school's computer science programs.
Through the Institute, I will be able to develop connections with educators and computer science technology developers that will be priceless. By networking and making these connections, I believe the doors will be open for my student's futures. I can't wait to attend this Institute and continue to learn with and through others one of our schools goals!
