My Students

I have a classroom of 18 students. My students are very diverse. I work at a Title I school. A very high percentage of children in my school are from low-income families. This percentage is above 80%. My students have different hardships, but they do their best to succeed. While at school, I try to create an engaging, fun, loving, and caring environment where students can learn through hands-on activities and amazing literature.

My students come to school always willing to do their best to succeed, and they love to discover the world around them.

I have wonderful students who are eager to learn and work hard. My students also learn with fun and engaging activities in every subject. I am proud of the determination and drive that my students show, each day​ when they come into school.

My Project

I am asking for twenty-six subscriptions to DynaMath, a math magazine by Scholastic. This magazine will help integrate both mathematics and reading. It is hard integrating subjects, but with this magazine, it will be a breeze.

My students love Scholastic magazines, and with your help, I can incorporate them into my math workstations.

Students will be able to read interesting articles and relate it to a math topic where students will work in their workstation group to solve problems in the magazine together. This will be a great tool to keep students reading and learn about the world around them in a mathematical way. I had these when I was in school and absolutely loved them. I hope my students can do the same with your help.
