My Students

My students are the brightest, most brilliant lights that are but a glimmer of the future. These kids love discovery learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

My students are innovative, tenacious, motivated, dedicated, and willing to work hard to develop revolutionary problem-solving skills for the 21st-century to find new ways to build their community.

They do whatever they put their minds to. They are willing and able to change the future. I want to help this group of young people make those creative visions of ingenuity a reality.

My Project

As a STEM endorsed teacher, I have plans to blow the minds of my students by flipping their ideas of learning, upside down, and show them a revolutionary classroom where they will be experimenting with innovation and technology. Inventing, programming, experimenting, and creating are the basics building blocks of innovation and this project.

This project will also help my students become problem-solvers while they are building, programming and experimenting with electronics and robotic technology.

They will learn twenty-first-century skills while engaging in some exciting hands on STEM project that is perfect for beginners. Students will be gaining valuable experiences with robotics, electronics, and programming that they will be able to build on as they advance in their education. In this ever-changing world, students need to be moving forward in a more technologically influenced educational project with the future in mind.

This project will incorporate this advancing technology with real world application and skill development. Preparing students for many jobs, that currently do not exist, is why teaching critical thinking, problem-solving, collaborating, and communication skills, are vital for students to successfully navigate a technological future.
