My Students

My students are inquisitive and curious. They love to explore things and ask questions. Our classroom is a place we can step into a new world to explore and discover. Sometimes it will be a hospital, a scene from toy story, or a construction site to help them find a new way of looking things.

My students make me look at our world and see all the possibilities.

I love seeing their excitement and cheer each other. They have a love for STEM. Our classroom is designed to move, discuss, and be hands on. My students are becoming lifelong learners. I am excited to see what my students design, code, and engineer in the future.

My Project

The materials we are requesting will enable more students to have access to coding on a daily basis. My students have learned, the more time they get to code, the more it helps them throughout their day. Coding isn't just for computers.

Coding is used with math, reading, group work and so much more.

Lighting that spark of coding now, will only open many, many more doors of opportunities for them once they hit the career field. They will already be pre-exposed to this type of work and will be ahead of their peers making them more qualified for their jobs.

The creativity my students are able to show within coding is unbelievable. Once one student learns something, they all jump in to make sure the others all are able to do it as well, building their skills together.
