I am a 3rd-grade teacher at Hiteon Elementary school.  We have around 700 students enrolled K-5.

I have a reputation for being an innovative teacher.  Infusing technology into the classroom has been a passion of mine for six years.  I have worked closely with staff members and district TOSA's and Admins to help students become skilled not only in technology but in collaboration and problem-solving.  This is what jobs of the future are going to require. 

Most recently, I had 25 of my 28 students compete in teams in the Wonder League International Programming Challenge.  One of our teams ranked in the top 85 out of  5,300+ teams.  They are currently competing in the invitational round. 

I would like to purchase a variety of materials for 1st thru 3rd graders to engage with.  Students are thinkers and my job is to get them to think even deeper. They are curious by nature and love a challenge. I want to continue to create and find engaging ways to challenge them. For this project, I would like to purchase

 

3- Lego Wedo sets $230 X 3 = $690

2-Lego Simple Machines $110 X 2 = $220

2-OSMO Genius kits $100 X 2 = $200

1-OSMO Coding Jam game $60 X 1 =$60

1-Cublets 20 block set $ 458 X1= $458

$1,628

I want students to have the opportunity to use their imagination and creativity while supporting STEM activities by designing, coding, constructing, and putting science concepts into play.  These tools will allow students the additional practice to think logically and analyze their data.The patience required when programming and learning from failure will give the students the needed skill set to persevere in life when they must struggle through difficult times.
