My Students

My students are fun, energetic and eager to learn in the classroom. As we all know, most students do not LOVE math as much as I do, so I make it a point to show my love for all things Math to all of my students.

Our school is located in an urban area of Philadelphia, where our students come from all different kinds of backgrounds.

All of our students can obtain a free hot breakfast and lunch through our Title 1 funding.

My main goal is to ensure that each child can be successful in the classroom. When their needs are met, I know that I have done my part in helping them reach their success.

My Project

My students are in need of a new whiteboard table for our classroom. The table that we have now is on it's last legs (literally!) We need a new table that will be sturdy and allow for my students to be fully engaged in the lesson.

A whiteboard table will allow students to write on the table and perform the math functions while we practice in small groups.

I want them to be fully engaged in the lesson and participate in our math activities. This new table will allow for this to occur, and I am so excited to see the new furniture in action! Also, we need basic school supplies, such as, pencils and pens to replenish our diminishing supply.
