My 3rd grade classroom is composed of 20 students. In our school 95% of students qualified for free and reduced price lunch and with limited funding the math supplies they need to develop conceptual understanding are not available to them. Most of my students are English Language Learners and school does not come easy for them, but their hard work resilience and flexibility continues to inspire me. Here are a few statistics about the District of Clark County. 1) Less than half of students will graduate from high school 2) African American and Latino/Hispanic children drop out at twice the rate of their Caucasian peers 3) Nevada ranks 50th in high school graduation rate I have students that dream of being scientist, game makers and teachers. For the majority of them, math is their favorite subject. Without the necessary math supplies, they will not be able to compete with other children who come from more affluent classrooms and will not be able to reach their dreams for the future.
