My Students

"There is no friend as loyal as a book." Ernest Hemingway surely had my students in my mind when he pondered the wonders of reading a great book.

My 4th and 5th-grade students love nothing more than being absorbed in an exciting and thought-provoking novel.

Our class' language arts program may be based on academic standards, but the foundation lies in introducing students to literature that captures their attention and engages them in reading. As with most students, the material they read must captivate them, or else they are not motivated to read and quickly lose focus. Most of my students have been working at an advanced level in reading since Kindergarten, so they have an innate desire to read high-quality pieces of literature.

My Project

Our PTE Robotics Club is growing by leaps and bounds! The desire of kids to learn robotics and coding is massive, and we are trying to offer more opportunities to participate and learn. Our project will add an additional Mindstorms EV3 to our club, enabling more kids to benefit from learning robotics!

The robotics and coding skills kids acquire is only part of the equation; additionally they learn to collaborate, think critically, and use their creativity to solve real world problems.

Throughout instruction kids are given challenges to solve, which they must do by working together to design, build, and code their bot through the engineering design process.
