My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school, my students come from various home lives, many of which are not as pleasant as I would hope. While they are sweet and eager to learn, a few of my students have more on their minds than education and school work. Some of them wonder if they will see their parents before bedtime, or if they have clean clothes to wear the next day. Some live with one parent and spend much of their time wondering about their other parent.

With a class full of students who often have unmet needs, I try my best to make school a place where they feel welcome and wanted.

We live on love and laughter in our classroom.

My Project

My students use whiteboards for their math every day. For months, we have been desperately low on dry erase markers. The clear view dry erase pockets will help my students maximize their time during math instruction. Much of their time is spent drawing charts, place value blocks, and fraction bars. These pockets will allow me to insert worksheets that come with our math curriculum so that my students don't have to spend time drawing these things. Hook and loop (Velcro) is used to keep their markers handy since we use them often. This again, allows students to be prepared for the task right away and avoid losing time as they dig through their desk for their markers. I would also like for my students to have visuals for fractions in order to help them identify equivalent fractions and see other types of fraction operations.
