Educator Experience

Hi! I am Blair Bedner, aka Ms. Bedner or Ms. B!

I am about to begin my eighth year as a science teacher and am happy to announce that I will be adding two robotics classes to my course load! This is my third year as a seventh grade science teacher at Sugar Land Middle School where I also serve as cosponsor to the Coding and Robotics Club and Science Club. In addition, I manage the campus website and participate in the Equip Academy which provides me with 15 laptops to use in my classroom. For the past two years, my team and I participated in  Impact Teams which encourages student ownership in learning. This year, our teams implemented a protocol from the model in a PLC which was recorded and used in a summer professional development to help model and encourage strategies to conduct a successful data driven PLC.

I previously taught 6th grade science at James H. Baker Sixth Grade Campus in La Porte, TX where I served as the robotics coach.  In 2015, my robotics partner and I

were awarded a grant for $3,658 to help implement a robotics club at our campus. In 2016, we were awarded a grant for $4,000 to purchase iPads for the robotics program.
