My Students

These rambunctious 7th graders will make you smile, laugh, and be so thankful that you met them! Although math is typically frowned upon, my students come in with good attitudes and are ready to start learning new concepts!

This years group that I have, I could not ask for better kids!

For the most part, they listen and try to do their best for me! I have kiddos from all walks of life and I want them to know that they are in a safe environment. We talk, we laugh and we learn!

My Project

Our school recently just went 1:1 with iPads. This has been an amazing and exciting time for our school! We get to use technology in a way that we have never gotten to before!

As a math class, our curriculum is all online!

This switch to 1:1 has been a godsend to us! We use them everyday and we use them almost the whole period! That being said, by the end of the day, the iPads have been dying! Even if they are at 100% at the beginning of the day, they are used so much that by the end of the day they have run out of steam! Instead of having 5 kids plug into wall outlets, I would love for them to be able to just borrow a portable charger and sit at their desk while it charges!
