My Students

We are an inner city, High-5 through eighth grade elementary school in a very high poverty area of a large metropolitan school district. Many students have their first experiences with science during their time with me. One unique aspect to our school is that we serve a large population of Somalians that are new to our country.

The majority of my students are English language learners from both East Africa and Latin America.

Our free lunch status is ninety-eight percent or higher. My teaching position is one of a resource or specialist teacher who serves over 650 students throughout the school year. One of my personal joys is teaching these students year after year as they transition through their elementary grade levels.

My Project

These Spike Prime LEGO robotics kits will provide students with the real life engineering and science of robots. experiences they need. With these hands-on robotics tools students will be inspired to explore, uncover and discover the world of robotics. With the ever increasing use of automation and the need for future robotics engineers these materials will bring advance STEM learning to our young scientists.

Robot design, construction, programing testing and improving your robot are all part of the hands on learning projects with Spike Prime Lego Robotics.

Do you remember imagining a future with robots that do everything from your homework to doing house chores for you? Well those days may be coming sooner than we think. My students need to get on the cutting edge of electronics and robotics by using the Spike Prime robotics kit.
