What We Stand For
I will inspire my students. As their teacher, I will be dependable and a positive influence. I will teach them what Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) can do for them through teaching and the national state standards. I will bring out their creativity and personality so they can succeed beyond measures. I will teach them to take pride in their work, but also how to take and give proper constructive criticism during critiques so they can see their work through different eyes. I will teach in different learning styles so everyone will have an equal opportunity. I will be there for my students through their ups and down.
Teaching the Professionals of Tomorrow
Della School of Coding & Design is a private (k-6) school that was founded in August 2020. We established the school to give students a quality education that will make them prepared and competitive to compete in the world. We strongly believe that when students have a solid education in a safe environment, it makes them a well-rounded student.
The school seeks students who are inquisitive and motivated to learn, faculty who are passionate about their fields of study, and staff who are devoted to supporting the educational mission of the school. Our goal is also to provide an education that involves traditional learning that composes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). We recognize that STEM is part of the world and there is high demand for STEM degrees and jobs. Preparing students in their early education years for STEM puts them ahead of the race in all aspects.
