My Students

My 3rd-grade classroom is comprised of students who immigrants and speak a language other than English at home, are gifted, or part of our special education programs.

I love the start of each day, students line up ready to get to class.

They smile because they know that something will happen. I keep them guessing at what new things I might try or how I will read, and even what I just might wear (I came dressed as Dr. Seuss one day). These students have all different interests from playing sports to reading a good book, but they share a common bond, the bond of curiosity and that is truly an amazing gift.

My students live in a high poverty area in Arizona and our school is a Title I campus and 100% of the school is eligible for the free lunch program. Our focus goals are to greatly improve our writing and our math abilities, but a major focus is to improve our reading ability of fluency to comprehension in all aspects of our school and classroom.

Our belief is every student, every classroom, every day.

My Project

These tablets will help students bring their Sphere SPRK's to their full potential, by giving each Sphere a command center. Being able to code helps students to think outside the box, think in different ways to accomplish a goal, and work together and alone to solve those many tasks.

Having the Robots and tablets will help students learn about responsibility as well as those critical thinking skills needed to be successful.

The tablets will allow students to create a path, have their robots follow that path, and the students are able to carry on with their projects without being confined to a small location.

Students love to learn, giving them the tools they need to be successful is an essential step. Having the Robots and tablets working together will help students learn about responsibility as well as those critical thinking skills needed to be successful.
