My Students

My students are a diverse population of Kindergarten through fifth grade students in an inner city elementary school in Denver, Colorado. We are an International Baccalaureate school that values hands-on, project-based learning.

My students are curious, motivated learners who ask a million questions about STEM and STEAM.

I teach gifted and talented education as well as run a popular after school coding and robotics program. My students continue to request more and more robotics resources. In addition, I am trying to encourage girls to become involved in the rapidly growing world of technology and engineering.

My Project

My students are avid fans of Dot and Dash, the Wonder Workshop robots. They have learned so much about coding and robotics with their curriculum. Recently, the company added some new resources that combine coding and visual art.

We are so excited to explore the addition of art to our STEM program and see what new adventures we can create.

Will we write stories that we illustrate through coding? Create a treasure map? An escape room? The opportunities for new creative outlets are endless with these tools. I am working to encourage more girls to get involved with engineering and technology, and I believe this addition will be enticing to them.
