My Students

My students are faced with many challenges due to their socioeconomic status, but they are excited to come to a school that embraces their differences and inspires them to rise to high expectations both in the classroom and in their personal encounters with their teachers, peers, families, and communities. My goal is to teach my students to become problem-solvers who are willing to persevere through difficult problems and apply what they are learning to real-world situations.

Teaching students to collaborate and problem solve together is essential for their future college and career success.

It is not only an investment in their future but also a sign of good faith that we believe in their success and ability to persevere in problem-solving. Learning to communicate with others in a safe place like a classroom will be a skill that students use at home, with friends, and in their jobs.

My Project

High schoolers love to socialize and collaborate with each other about many things, and I want to teach them to talk with each other about math, patterns, and real world problems. To prepare them for jobs in technological and engineering fields, they need to develop skills to tackle tough problems through collaboration in the math classroom.

I'm creating collaboration stations in my classroom, and each station will have a large whiteboard for students to map out ideas and present findings to the class and to each other.

My students need dry erase markers to use as tools to collaborate with their peers and present their awesome work to the class. I'm anticipating a lot of hard work to be accomplished daily and the need for many whiteboard markers as the year progresses.
