My Students

My students are wonderful human beings! They are an eager bunch, that love to learn. I have retainees, I have students that are academically low, I have the "average" students and I have the advanced bunch. Despite their levels of learning, they all try 100% of the time. I have the same high expectations for all of my students. They know that, and they work hard every single day to meet those expectations. My students come into my class ready to learn, ready to work, ready to be exceptional. Once they enter my math class they are ready to roll!

My hardworking students have exceptional personalities.

They are thoughtful, caring, kind, and loyal. They each have unique qualities that make them who they are. They are a cheerful bunch that will make anyone's day brighter. There is not one day that I don't go without a laugh or a smile, their witty humor always gets me!

My Project

My students will be able to focus on their math work rather than spend time worrying about not having the basic supplies. They will have access to the supplies they need daily: pencils, erasers, paper, markers, and headphones. This will allow them to do their classwork, homework, and computer assignments. Our days will flow seamlessly with a classroom sharpener and stapler.

My students will have the ultimate math resources at their fingertips, literally.

The laminating machine will be used to create worksheets where students may practice their work- a sort of dry erase pocket. It will also be used to laminate reference sheets that will be tailored to everything they will learn. These sheets will be available to them at all times. My students will have charts to refer to, and a number line they can utilize when working with those pesky negative numbers.

My students will be able to come into a classroom that is warm, inviting, and clean! The decorations will be used to create a safe space for the students. The hand sanitizer and tissues will be available for all students to use as they please. The Clorox wipes will be used to keep the classroom clean and germ free.

My students will be able to enjoy their free time with fun enriching math games! They will be having so much fun, they won't even realize they are still doing math.

As for the tasty treats, that's a plus! This will allow me to be able to continue with my incentive driven classroom. Positive reinforcement is the key to productive, successful, and happy students.
