My Students

I am a math teacher and tutorial teacher at my school. I teach in a Title I school district where 80 percent of our students receive a reduced or free lunch each day. Our school now has a program in place that allows all of our students in our school district this year to eat a free breakfast each morning.

I love teaching children with all my heart.

My classes are full of students each day that are eager to learn and always willing to help out when they can. It is a blessing to teach each and every one of my students.

My Project

We work in cooperative learning groups each day in my math classes and my tutorial classes. I supply my students with binders and pencils as they need them throughout the school year. I would like to have the Quill Brand 1 Inch Round Ring View Binders and the Dixon Ticonderoga Woodcase #2 Soft Yellow Barrel Pencils for my students to use in their cooperative learning groups each day. Many times they come to my class without their basic supplies. By having these binders and pencils available for them to use, they will be able to be more productive in class.
