My Students

I did not realize what an amazing sense of community and love existed in my classroom until the end of the school year came this past June. This was my first year teaching and as ready for summer as I was, I was also quite heartbroken to let my kiddos move on to high school. I thought about how amazing these kiddos were, even when it was not always so clear through the shenanigans called eighth grade. As much as they depended on me, I depended on them as a first-year teacher, and I am so thankful for that.

Eighth grade is a crucial time in a student's life in terms of development, including their self-decision on if they will be successful in math or not for years to come.

That being said, it is so important to incorporate a variety of tools, techniques, and supplies into the classroom. By providing students with varieties of learning methods, I have seen more students discover a love for math.

My Project

After my first year of teaching, I discovered that my students loved all of the activities involving art, prizes, etc. I too loved seeing students who, disengaged from math, get involved in such activities.

These activities not only demonstrated what they knew, but they took students out of note taking and instead incorporated more discussion, problem-solving, and creativity.

I would love to restock my classroom with supplies, along with some other necessities, to continue to provide these resources for my students! These supplies include art materials and cleaning supplies that I found to be most critical in our classroom last year.
