My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school, low-income, and high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status.

These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire them to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

The use of counting blocks, white boards, and math books in my classroom are part of our daily routine, especially in math. Using the workshop model in math, students come to the rug with whiteboards for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. Students enjoy working on the rug and in small groups, but because we have a lack of math resources, their learning is limited.

By donating to our project and the Math kit, you will not only help to improve and increase our math center, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Students will have a selection of math resources to choose from, and be able to focus on the academic materials at hand. With STEM education on the rise, students need more hands-on resources available. This will increase their math literacy as well as their desire to learn and apply their newly obtained skills!
