A little about Mrs. Wrobel
My name is Deborah Wrobel and I love my job! I'm in my 16th year of teaching and each year I'm lucky enough to get to work with some of the most brilliant minds....your children! As a Maker Space teacher AND Library Media Specialist (I definitely need to find a shortened title) I will get to share our brand new books and instill a love of reading, and I also get to teach in one of the finest Maker Spaces in any public elementary school in the state. When I'm not teaching I get to share lots of laughs with my family. My children are 20 and 18 (we just took my daughter to Gonzaga...Go Zags Basketball!!!) and my husband is an engineer who keeps me laughing all the time. We still appreciate the finer things like looking out of Stevens Creek Elementary and seeing the beautiful view but also are a soccer family. You can always come and talk to me about anything soccer and I'll be a great audience. I truly look forward to working with your child and savoring the amazing school we all have.
What is a Maker Space?
You know what a library is, but you may be thinking, "What is a maker space and how can my child benefit from this space?"
That's a question I get a lot and it's a fantastic question. Essentially a Maker Space is a place where students learn with their hands. Students will come with their class and incorporate their classroom learning in our maker space. From 3D printing, to LEGO creations to Laser construction/engraving, design and engineering, using a kiln/ceramics, sewing, cooking and even more, students will be thinking outside the box and showing how amazing their brains are...that includes making mistakes, too! I'm delighted to be a part of the incredible learning that will be happening in our Maker Space AND innovative library and look forward to new adventures every day.
Stay tuned, because we'll have parent nights where YOU, as parents, can sign up to come learn some of the equipment that we'll be using, as well.

It's imperative that our students understand internet safety. Common Sense Media has fantastic resources for parents, and students, to evaluate sites as well as learn more about internet safety. We'll be learning more in the computer lab, but every student should be aware of online safety
Let's keep our children both safe and aware!
