My Students

My students are truly the nicest kids you could ever meet. Despite any obstacle my students may face they come to school eager to learn each and every single day. Our school is truly the most diverse school I have ever seen. I have children that come from many different cultures, languages, religions, abilities and socio-economic statuses. I strive to make my classroom a happy and welcoming place that shows them that all people can work, learn and grow together.

My Project

My students could use a some new calculators for next year. I will be working with grades 6, 7 and 8 next year so that will be about 75 students. We could really use some additional calculators to help teach lessons whole class. The text book will also help me to develop lessons that I can teach the class using this wonderful tool. Finally, the sharpener will be essential for all 75 students to use to keep their math pencils sharp and ready to learn. Having these tools will help my daily math lessons run as smoothly as possible each and every day.
