A Little About MeMy name is Mr. Eveland, and I have always wanted to help people. I am a native San Diegan and love it here. Sports and music have always been hobbies of mine. I hope to use these skills and knowledge to improve the motivation of my students. I also do voices, accents, and love to use puppets.In the past I have been an educator at the San Diego Zoo (so I know quite a bit about animals and plants) and worked at camps (more experience with wildlife). I love animals and plants! So great is my love for wildlife, that I almost went to college to become a park ranger instead of a teacher. I'm glad I made the right choice, however, because of the wonderful feeling I get from helping students get on the road to an enriched life. I hope to make a difference in people's lives through education for many years to come.Maker/Breaker Space is a new element I am adding to my classroom. I have added it because of the iPads and many other building and making opportunities I have been given over the past year. The ideas of Seymour Papert have inspired me to do more experience and making activities in my class.Last year, I wrote a grant for an innovation space for our school, and we were awarded $15,000 dollars for robotics, 3d printers, and some prototyping supplies. I will be coaching the staff to facilitate student learning in programming, designing solutions for specific customers, and prototyping solutions. By 6th grade, students will design a solution to an environmental problem and create a prototype from scratch. We will have an innovation fair near the end of school to celebrate their designs.I am playing baseball with the Stars of the 35 and up league of the SDABL. I love sports!
