My Students

My middle school students live in New Jersey. They are stereotyped and misunderstood as typical inner-city, impoverished kids. But what I have found over the passed 4 years teaching in this part of the city is that these students can surprise you!

Inner-city students have the desire to learn, break out of the poverty cycle, and the excel in their changing world.

My students have proven each year that they will try, and learn, and excel when given the chance, the patience, and the tools.

My Project

US W.S. in New Jersey secured a grant from the University of Penn to host its first ever robotics lab. We are excited about the possibilities this opportunity will bring to our middle school. Unfortunately, the monies from the grant only supply 1 robotics kit which will serve 2 students. We would like to have another kit so we can start our lab with 4-6 students.

Students best learn when invested, excited, and collaborate on a project.

This kit will allow 2 more students to be part of this exciting opportunity with the Lego League. The students will work together to learn about robotics (mechanics, physics), build a robot using Legos (design), and run the robot in competition (collaboration, problem-solving).
