My Students

My students are amazing individuals! They represent many different countries around the world, and most speak more than one language!

My students are inquisitive and creative--they look for ways to showcase their learning in ways "outside the box." My students are mathematicians solving real-world problems to prepare them for life after college.

My students are a community; together we are better; helping, teaching, and praising each other; however, most of my students are also from low or no income households. Many get free or reduced price lunches. Many come from homes where little to no English is spoken. Many are refugees from other countries.

All of these things make my class unique and a wonderful environment for learning!

My Project

My classroom is in need of some organization! I love for my students to be able to find and access anything they may need during our time together.

These materials will make my classroom more organized so my students will be able to learn in a clutter-free environment!

The small plastic boxes will be used as supply boxes for each table group. They will hold markers, glue sticks, crayons, and scissors. The tiny plastic boxes will be used to hold small manipulatives like dice, two-color counters, and more. I am excited to use the Command Strips to hang up things around my room including the shoe organizer. I plan to use it as a storage hub for my headphones that the students use with their iPads.

I'm hoping to make my classroom a space where students feel like they can access what they need and learn without the clutter!
