My Students

The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life.

This upcoming school year I will be teaching for my first year around 24 students with low socioeconomic backgrounds.

My school serves over 600 students in a low-income area of town. The school is a transformation zone school where students come from all different backgrounds. Although these students have many odds against them they come to school to learn and receive an education that can help their future.

My Project

These materials will help make a difference in my classroom because it will help the students to learn basic reading and math skills.

When doing centers these supplemental resources will allow students to get hands-on use with flashcards and games that align with state standards.

The resources like Hot Dots are paced at appropriate levels and help with independent learning. For example, the math Hot Dots has lessons from place value and math facts to telling time and identifying money values.

These kinds of resources will help raise student achievement and give them even more incentives to help them take in necessary information.
