My Students

One tenet of successful mathematics teaching that I have noticed as a teacher is that my students need to understand the relevance of the math they are learning in their own lives outside the classroom. I always try to incorporate skills into the curriculum that will help prepare them for the future. In addition, I always seek to do so in a way that makes sense to them at this critical point in their lives.

For each school year to be successful, my students need certain basic supplies in order to keep the focus on learning.

As a teacher, I feel it is my job to ensure that the basics like pencils, pens, graph paper and erasers are always available in my classroom. My students deserve to have their basic educational needs met in the classroom daily. My students put in great effort to be successful so they deserve to have the best educational environment possible.

My Project

As the new school year begins, teachers everywhere consider all of their students' basic educational needs. We also consider how to best organize our classrooms to provide our students with the ideal educational experience. As we craft the best environment for our students, the costs quickly add up.

When my students enter my classroom in early September, they deserve to have supplies available that address their basic educational needs.

In order to provide this for my students, they need basic supplies like staples, binders, dry-erase adhesive roll for our board so that they can show their work, and permanent markers to label our supplies. Combining rewards with the most basic and important educational supply, pencils, is important so that the students feel recognized on their special day and also have something that they will need for their daily studies.

Lastly, our classroom needs products for better classroom organization. Cardboard organizers quickly collapse so we need more permanent storage solutions. Wood organizers will allow my students to enter an organized working environment where extra papers and supplies are easy to find.
