My Students

We learn from our mistakes. That's how we grow. If we always got every answer right, why would we need school? All students learn differently.

I have a mix of all learning styles in my class, and I would like to afford each of them the opportunity to learn to the best of their abilities.

I work in a great school. This year, I am responsible for teaching math to all 5th grade students throughout the course of a day. Among those, I have learners with special needs, gifted and talented-identified students and general education students. I also work with students with limited English proficiency. No matter their needs or backgrounds, we all work together toward a common goal...a successful school year.

My Project

Students are faced with many stressors on a daily basis. They have a rigorous curriculum, homework, outside activities, different needs/abilities, and the 5th graders are in the process of graduating to middle school programs. Although our school fosters a respectful social environment, our boys and girls are often overwhelmed and need an outlet. That is where our weekly clubs come in.

Participating in a non-academic club helps to build social-emotional health in students, relieving them, even temporarily, of the other responsibilities they have in their lives.

Here they can simply be kids, be creative and be free of judgment from the adults in their lives.

My duct-tape crafting club proves that all boys and girls are artistic and creative.

To create crafts they simply need a few items, including lots of colorful and patterned Duct tape, and safety cutters. We leave the rest up to their imaginations and peer-to-peer mentoring. This process allows them to be the dreamers and artists they believe they are.
