My Students

I work with immigrant students in the South Bronx. My students have worked to build successful futures by overcoming the economic, social, and personal challenges that caused them to fail in other schools.

Our school is a collaboration between the Department of Education and the City University of New York.

In four years, our students are expected to graduate with a Regents diploma granted by the Department of Education and an Associate Degree from Hostos Community College. Students take high school classes at our grades 6-12 middle/high school, and college classes at the college.

My Project

This set of algebra posters can help my students learn, engage, and remember topics and information for our year-end Regents exam. They cover a range of core topics and can play a vital role in improving my students' recall and understanding.

These wall posters are eye-catching, and they recap key information that will be covered in our class throughout the year.

The engaging, clear, and colorful designs and images on these posters create a fun learning environment in which my students can excel. The large size makes them ideal for reading from a distance.

In addition to the posters, I would like to keep a supply of mechanical pencils and erasers on hand so that my students won't spend a lot of wasted time looking for pencils or sharpening pencils during class.
