My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! Challenging oneself to learn difficult mathematical concepts is what my students strive for to succeed. But with so many students working at different speeds it is difficult to give them the response time they love.

Students in my classes are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.

They enjoy learning and they are excited about it and I want them to continue in this direction. They are able to work alone or in collaborative groups. Everyday they come to school prepared and eager to learn with a spirit that inspires a community.

My Project

Students succeed when they are engaged in the topics they are studying. More often than not, school keeps students indoors, seated, and passive in their learning.

All teachers want their students to be active learners.

This is best done when students get up and interact. The Microsoft Surface Book will allow students to go outside and discover math in their world. Whether they are at the field calculating the path of a ball with video equipment the Surface Book will allow them to analyze the data all in real time.

Back in the classroom they will be able to share their findings with the entire class and encourage others to think outside the box and apply their math skills to the world outside.
