My Students

I teach a wonderful group of students in a high poverty neighborhood. The children I teach have the same drive to learn as students in more affluent neighborhoods.

I have been teaching in this same neighborhood for 10 years and for the past 10 years, I have seen parents struggle to buy basic supplies for their children.

They often have to choose whether to buy school supplies are food, needless to say, the parents chose to buy food. A lack of supplies can really hurt a students self esteem.

My Project

Two summers ago, I took a robotics professional development. The program gifted me with one Lego Mindstorms robot. Unfortunately, that was not enough materials to get my robotics program up and running. Thanks to generous donations from Donors Choose, I have been able to supplement my program with the expansion kits, the challenge course, and chromebooks to allow the student to program their robots.

Now, we are in need of another chromebook.

I have been gifted another Lego Mindstorms robot to use with my children. Currently, students are sharing laptops to program their robots. This can be problematic because they often have to use the laptops for extended periods of time, which means there is always a group of students without a laptop. An additional chromebook would help to ensure all students can work comfortably to program their robots.
