My Students

This year I will be teaching AP Statistics to traditionally disadvantaged high school students at a charter school in a major southern metropolitan area. All of my students have elected to take AP Statistics in the hopes of earning college credit and preparing themselves for post-secondary education. My students have high aspirations, and I am committed to engaging them in this difficult course and helping them be successful!

In order to help my students succeed this year, I plan to be innovative, project-based, and language-focussed!

Part of my philosophy involves multiple teaching strategies. Because AP Statistics is not a typical high school math class, I plan to do things a little differently in the classroom. I want students to have the opportunity to be creative and learn in ways that are best for them. This being said, I'm hoping to acquire some classroom supplies to help with my overall mission!

My Project

There are many opportunities for students to collaborate with one another in AP Statistics. That being said, a lot of the supplies I am requesting will help students collaboratively display data, findings, projects, etc. Also, certain supplies will provide students' access to basic necessities such as pencils, paper, dry erase markers, and pencil sharpeners. Lastly, construction paper, and dry-erase boards provide students with individualized learning opportunities.

Altogether, these supplies will help students better understand AP Statistics!

During this course, students will have a variety of learning experiences! Sometimes those experiences are hard to fund, so the donation of these supplies will help make that possible!
