My Students

My classroom is nestled in a small rural elementary school where hometown pride runs high. Community families support each other, and children thrive in various academic and athletic programs. With sixth-grade students still being in the elementary building, I am looking for one more way to provide a program that is special to them and, in addition, will better prepare them for junior high school.

My young mathematicians are inquisitive inductive and deductive thinkers who blossom desirably when given the opportunity to participate in nontraditional practices and competitive opportunities.

"Life is a math equation. In order to gain the most, you have to know how to convert negatives into positives.” – Anonymous

With low funds and a lofty number of disadvantaged students, it is my goal to transform some negatives into positives. I hope to attain the ability to remove barriers and intensify the love and desire of inquiring math minds.

My Project

24® Game provides an exciting and engaging way for students to increase speed, accuracy, and confidence when solving basic math equations. While helping children improve in "computation, problem-solving, number sense, critical thinking, and pattern sensing", the 24 game also prepares them to perform under pressure in a timed competition.

I would like to purchase three 24 Game Tournament Kits that will be used in the classroom and in a newly created afterschool club.

In addition to routine classroom use, students will be given the opportunity to join an afterschool "24 Challenge" practice and competitive club. Ultimately, three students will have the opportunity to compete at our local Arin IU competition.
