My Students

I work in the small Texas town of El Paso, surrounded by beautiful bilingual students who want to make this world a better place by learning all they can about science, technology, engineering, and math.

The kids here are blessings in my life!

They are ready to experience, and they appreciate learning and sharing what they have learned and putting it to good use to better serve their community. I know no one becomes a teacher to be rich; we become teachers because we love kids and we want to make a difference in their lives.

I hope to have a classroom where kids can explore, learn, create, and solve! Programming is new to them and they want to get better at it!

My Project

What an opportunity to learn about pandemic response and give input and learn what an engineer would have to know and how to deal with such an important event.

Students just might decide on what they want to do for their future if they enjoy finding solutions to difficult situations with the Outbreak Alert.

The bundle has everything they need to find a solution to a real life problem.

Play and learning at the same time is one of the best ways to reach children of all ages, and I know some 4th and 5th graders that would love this bundle.
