My Students

My students are enthusiastic, passionate, curious and thirsty for learning. They love exploring, creating and being involved in their own learning. My students are unique and want to be appreciated for their differences.

My students come from middle to lower socio-economic backgrounds and 100% of my students are on free or reduced lunch.

Despite the fact that many of my students come from disadvantaged backgrounds, I do not allow my students to use this as a hindrance. They are expected to come to class everyday prepared and ready to learn.

My Project

Interactive Notebooks are designed for students to personalize their learning in a structured organization that allows for creativity and engagement. These interactive notebooks allow students to learn AND study at the same time .

My students use interactive notebooks as a learning tool to take notes using foldables, graphic organizers, note taking templates and to practice and apply mathematical concepts.

My students take pride in creating their interactive notebook and love the "learn by doing" philosophy.

My resources for this project will provide and allow my students to organize, personalize and make sense of their learning as well as creating a published portfolio of their student work.

My students need colored paper, glue sticks, notebook tabs, colored pencils, and a sharpener for colored pencils.
