It's the First Monday of the Summer!

I had the most amazing year. My homeroom was an amazing group of students - so hard working and sweet.  I loved how smoothly things went this year so I will be getting things ready for my classroom early this year as well.

Summer Opportunities for My Students

Some of my students say they get bored during the summer so I like to tell them about great programs for STEM.

1) Canegie Mellon -Online Program  - This summer, students have the opportunity to learn how to program robots, design games, and play with cool software for free.  We will provide all of the software and training materials at no cost to you or your students.  The course will consist of three modules: movement, sensing, and program flow and will be taught using Robot Virtual World software!
The project starts June 15, register here and we will send you a reminder!
