My Students

My gifted pull-out classroom is a place where students are challenged to think creatively and problem-solve. My students need additional enrichment that cannot always be provided in the regular classroom setting.

My students are bright and excited to learn.

They are full of ideas and questions and they are just waiting for the opportunity to think outside the box.

They do not have many available resources in the classroom. They attend urban public schools and they deserve the same opportunities and experiences as students in more affluent districts.

My Project

My students have minimal experience with coding and robotics. They need experience with a variety of robotics, like the Sphero, in order to become fluent with computer programming. Through coding and robotics, my students will work on collaboration, creativity, problem solving, and perseverance.

Everyone needs experience with coding and robotics.

My students will need to understand how to code in order to be competitive in the work force. Most jobs in the future will involve some sort of computer programming and my students do not have the resources at home or at school.

With the Sphero robots, my students will be able to improve their problem solving skill and creativity. They will also be able to improve their collaboration and communication skills
