My Students

Most students come from Low-income, minority households. All of my students are struggling in Mathematics, which is a Core state-testing subject, this is why they have been placed into Math Intervention class. My goal is to focus in depth on the basic fundamentals of Mathematics in order to give my students a solid foundation in Math and be able to improve their state-test scores and successfully move forward through high-school graduation and beyond. Foundation is the key to successful progression.

My Project

These laptops will provide my students with the ability to access Jackson Public Schools Classworks online program, which is an online Math Intervention program that is required by our school district and aimed primarily at students who score in the bottom 25% on Math state testing in Mississippi. This technology will also provide my students with the opportunity to utilize other useful online Math programs such as MobyMax, USA Test Prep, and Khan Academy interactive programs, as well as YouTube tutorial videos and so much more! Interactive learning is vital in this day and age, and my students have very limited access to technology.
