My Students

My students are so full of life! As a teacher, I am still trying to create a classroom full of the math manipulatives and organizational tools that will help my students grow, but my students are just genuinely happy to be at school and in math class with me no matter what we have to work with. They are 4th graders who still love their teacher and have a passion for learning.

I live and teach in a small rural town which comes with challenges.

Many of my students come from low income families and live in poverty. Anything and everything is new and exciting to them which is why I love them so much. The smallest of gestures can mean so much in their young lives, and they are quick to let me know how grateful they are.

I have 87 students I see daily in 4 class periods. Each student has areas of personal growth and challenges. Our school motto is to grow together, and that is what we strive to do every day together! Thank you for taking the time to read my story and learn a little about my students.

My Project

Many of my students struggle with basic math skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Some of them still use their fingers to count or little tricks and tips to remember multiplication tables.

My students need these Power Pens and Power Pen Math Quiz Cards to help them grow their minds to hold basic math facts.

As math gets more challenging throughout the year, they will have the foundational skills they need to be successful. The quiz cards will make a huge difference for my students by helping some of my struggling learners build those foundational skills and retain basic fact fluency while having fun! Thank you!
