My Students

This is my third year as an educator and I teach Math to middle school students in Oklahoma City. Most of my students come from low-income families and receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Our students are often resistant to reading, writing, and learning on an empty stomach, but when they are exposed to high-interest materials, food, supplies and a comfortable environment, they are motivated to read, write, and take ownership of their learning!

I am working on compiling workbooks to teach my students.

My goal is for my students to reach and exceed their grade level! I want to accomplish this by first making my classroom hospitable, conducive to hearing and seeing the instruction in hand and a pleasurable room to learn. Help me provide a great environment that my students will cherish!

My Project

Our students are often resistant to reading, writing, and learning on an empty stomach, but when they are exposed to high-interest materials, food, supplies and a comfortable environment, they are motivated to read, write, and take ownership of their learning!

It's my belief that you cannot get students to learn until you first get them to enjoy coming to class.

Some of that is accomplished by creating a welcoming environment. My students currently attend school in a building many decades old and currently being renovated. Our students are used to having second-hand and outdated supplies, so I'd love for once, to be able to give them something new and special. Help me make my middle school Math classroom their favorite classroom, and therefore, their most effective classroom!

Help me do this by providing food and supplies to improve student productivity and inspire creativity!

I would love for my classroom to be comfortable and motivate all of my students to want to learn.

With your help, I'd love to create an atmosphere that is both welcoming and engaging, is productivity-inspiring, and that is a safe space where my students feel confident expressing themselves and being vulnerable to making mistakes, especially while adjusting to our district changes.
