Degrees and Certifications:
I have been an educator for 23 years! The years have gone by so quickly and I still LOVE what I do! I hope my passion for sharing with my students shows everyday!
I am the Maker Space Maker and I teach a Career and Technical Education (CTE) course called PLTW Exploring Engineering. PLTW stands for Project Lead the Way. PLTW is a curriculum that focuses on STEM/STEAM learning. The course that your scholars are in is the PLTW Gateway course called Design and Modeling or DM for short. Your scholars will be learning about the design process and modeling which are engineering skills. Students will be learning by doing through Activity-Project Based learning activities. My goal is to get your scholars to THINK! I hope that I help each student to explore, inquire and engage in intentional learning EVERYDAY! Students will also have the awesome ability to become MAKERS in the Maker Space. We will have challenges often and utilize all of our awesome equipment (i.e. 3D printers, bling machine, heat press, embroidery machine and so much more).
I currently have a Donor's Choose project that needs funding to provide your scholars with a Lego Wall in the Maker Space. Please consider donating to my project...your scholars will thank you!
