My Students

My students teach me as much as I teach them. They come from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. Many of them were, and some still are, displaced due to damage to their homes caused by Hurricane Harvey. In spite of these differences, they work together to form a positive, encouraging team that supports each other both academically and emotionally.

More than 85% of the students at my school come from high poverty backgrounds.

This does not keep them from coming to school with smiles on their faces as they walk through the door. They are excited to learn about new things and to experience things they know are "out there."

The academic ability of my students range from developing to gifted. This diversity allows for truly collaborative learning. As first graders, they love the hands-on experiences that are still so very important as they develop the foundation for life-long learning.

My Project

It is said that many of the jobs students are currently being educated for haven't even been thought of yet. This is certainly true in the computer field. Being exposed to the experience of computer language through coding is critical to the successful futures of these students. Botley the Coding Robot provides a hands-on learning opportunity that supports understanding of and engagement in computer coding.

Having the Botley robots and accessories in my classroom will allow me to create engaging, differentiated learning activities in all curriculum areas while teaching the skill of coding.

The Botley Robots can grow with the students as their knowledge of programming increases. The educational and lifelong benefits the knowledge of computer programming will give these students is immense.
