Mr. Scavo's Coding/Robotics
DEAR STUDENTS AND PARENTS,
We are beginning what will be a very memorable school year. I am equally excited and nervous about all the changes we will be facing this year, even though I have been teaching for over 20 years. You may be feeling nervous or even dreading the idea of more distance learning. I want you to know that whatever your feelings are, I am here to help.
This is my 24th year as an educator in this district. I started teaching at Harden as a math teacher and I became involved with technology over the past 10 years. I am fortunate to be able to teach this unique coding and robotics class in the middle school. We work with various tools and robotic parts, so I value safety and respect of property. I have high expectations and will challenge you, but I will also provide support to those who “don’t get it… yet”.
I also value parental communication and I will send weekly summary messages home from Google Classroom (if you accept the invite) about the work for the week. Everything will be posted in Google Classroom, so make sure you read all announcements and complete all assignments there. On a page below you will see the pacing for the class. As you already know, you are only taking 3 classes at a time. Even though I feel comfortable with technology, I will probably make mistakes as we learn together during distant learning. I am sure we all will do our best.
I will see you online.
