My Students

Learning is not always a priority of my students. All of my students come from very different home lives, and school is an escape from the craziness of life sometimes. It is my goal to make school a place they like and want to come.

Our school has a very high population of lower income families.

We actually serve breakfast and lunch to every student in the district at no charge to the families. Additionally, we have an outside organization that provides food to take home over the weekend to many of our students. Home life can be hard for many of our students so we try to help out.

My Project

It is amazing how much technology is in our world today. Kids love technology so why not use technology for educational purposes. In our classroom we will use the Sphero Sprk+ and Osmo Kits to teach the kids about teamwork and problem solving. These are two skills that all people need to develop no matter what future path they choice to take for themselves.

In my classroom, I like to create an environment where learning is always taking place.

The Sphero Sprk+ and Osmo Kits are both fun and exciting pieces of technology. It is my hope to teach teamwork and problem solving to the kids through fun engaging activities where they do not even realize they are learning. An example is the students will have to complete challenges like driving the Sphero Sprk+ through mazes and solving puzzles with the Osmo kits. Both of these tasks will be completed as a team leading to the teamwork and problem solving for the students. The Spero Sprk+ and Osmo Kits will create so many opportunities for learning and fun in our classroom.
