My Students

I have a very diverse group of students who have faced many challenges in their short lives. In our area, financial hardship is real.

Our little school is special, with students and staff that embrace all students for who they are.

Our students embody our school theme of kindness to all.

I want to help these students to spread their kindness to the world as they mature and enter the workforce. I want to give them every advantage that I can, but because we are so rural, our declining enrollment is having a negative impact on our budget.​ There isn't enough funding to provide the extras that make a classroom both functional and a little extra special. I do what I can personally but it is never enough.

My Project

Math games and math file folder kits will allow my students to practice skills that they learn in my classroom. They can learn new skills but without daily practice and reinforcement, those skills will slip away.

My students will learn skills that will help them break the cycle of poverty by learning to work with other students when using the file folder games and learning to think independently with the Calendar Math Center and the Equivalency Puzzles.

The skills learned and reinforced with the use of these materials will lead to my mathematicians to being literate in mathematical practices.

With this fluency,​ they will be able to participate and become successful in this competitive world and break the poverty cycle that they have grown up in.
