My Students

I work in a Title I School where more than 80% of the students receive free or reduced lunch, many face substantial challenges in their home lives but still show up to school enthusiastic and ready to learn.

Abigail Adams once said "Learning is not attained by chance; it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence." My students live up to this statement every day!

As a math interventionist, many of my students enter the classroom performing at a standard below their current grade level and together the students and I work incredibly hard to make sure they have the necessary tools and support they need to progress in their learning.

Many of my students show a growth of 1 - 2 years in the 9 months they spend in my classroom which goes to show just how dedicated and hard working they are.

My Project

My students are building their confidence in math. To make them as successful as they can be, I create many activities, games and centers in order to tailor them to each students specific needs.

I work with around 100 students on any given day each with their own unique needs, the color printer, toner and card stock will benefit each and every one of my students through the centers, games and hands on activities we use every day.

The additional ability to laminate these activities will make them more durable allowing them to stand up to frequent use.

Color is a powerful educational tool for teachers as it encourages engagement in activities. According to an independent study by Loyola University, color accelerates learning and recall by as much as 78%. A color printer in my classroom will increase learning as well as help my students retain what they have learned.
