My Students

We are a low income school with a diverse population, located in rural Appalachia. Many of my students come to school to escape hardships that they face at home. Our teachers provide a stable, loving environment for those students and continue to teach with passion to ensure the best learning possible.

Our school strives to provide many different opportunities for students to learn and accelerate.

We believe that all students can learn. Our job is to tap into that potential and make it possible!

My Project

In my classroom, I am always looking for new ways to teach students. Sphero 2.0 is a way to incorporate coding, games, and challenges into every subject area. This Sphero can be used to make lessons fun and interesting in math, reading, science, and social studies!

My students love coding and how it makes them problem solve to get to their answers.

This is what you are helping to fund. Fun learning opportunities. You are helping a classroom of future leaders understand that learning and school can be fun. Thank you in advance for your help on this classroom project!
