My Students

My students are unique. Our middle school is unique. I teach 4th-8th grade students with ages ranging from 8 years, to 15 years old. Everyone has a different story to tell and a different background they come from.

I am teaching 21st century skills to our future.

These young minds are our future community members, nurses, caregivers, lineman, teachers, farmers and business professionals. Our students are discovering a variety of technology skills on a daily basis whether that is their goal or not. It's my job to motivate them to learn the most they can, in the little time I have with them.

Many aspects of their daily lives currently involve the use of technology. Programming, animation, digital editing and becoming a respectful digital citizen are among our goals each year.

My Project

The use of an iPad and Dash Robot will allow my students to gain valuable coding experience. They will be able to not only practice their computer programming skills but also be up and about all while allowing students to be engaged and on task.

Technology classes should be more than sitting and using a Chromebook or Computer, we should be practicing in many areas of today's technology.

Students will be faced with various coding tasks and challenges, and they will have fun and entertaining ways to solve them. Providing a changeup in their environment and allowing movement for my students, they will be able to a have fresh feel in their learning and not the normal chair and table experience in this class.
