My Students

There are 117 students in my cluster. There are over 41% of my students are ELLs and new arrivals. We are a Title I school and our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our school has 84.4% which qualifies our school as a Title I school. In September, the benchmark indicated that 83% of my students scored "basic", "below basic", or "on watch". Many of my students have gaps in their math education.

Many of my disadvantaged students have gaps in their math education.

My students will benefit enormously to utilize a whiteboard with a distance-learning format. As of March 30th, my students have been learning at home. Our school district has been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. We are living in challenging times, as many of my students do not have me providing them lessons in their homes. These lessons can help all my students. Hopefully, when we go back to school it will be utilized by 117 students.

My Project

Please help me give our students lessons on a whiteboard while we practice distance learning due to the COVID-19 Virus. My students are quarantined at home and are not able to leave their houses during this pandemic. I am willing to deliver math lessons utilizing the whiteboard for teaching during distance learning. This is a wonderful method to allow my students to participate in online lessons while helping my students to continue learning during this pandemic. A lot of our students are lacking in math skills and will be extremely appreciative to utilize these lessons during these unprecedented times. It would allow our students to continue to learn.
