My Students

I am a Science Specialist in a public school in St. Paul Minnesota. Our student population is about 70% ELL, mostly from South East Asia and we are 100% free/reduced lunch status.

With that said, my students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions!

They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My Project

I want to make every day the best day of science and I want my students to walk away every day with unique and exciting experiences. Students in today's world must be prepared for a technology-filled world of the future and Sphero robots will help them be successful. Sphero Edu uses app-enabled robots to go beyond just code with collaborative STEAM activities, nurturing students’ imaginations in ways no other education program can.

I would like a classroom set of 12 Spheros so every student can be part of a computer coding team!
