My Students

My third grade dual language students live in an economically disadvantaged community. Ninety-two percent of students from our school come from low income families. All my students are Spanish speakers learning English as their second language. Like every other kid, my students dream of becoming great global citizens with wonderful careers in their future and I believe that every single one of them can.

When I see my students I see all the potential they have to be a very successful citizen of the 21st century.

Even though they are faced with many challenges daily, they are very enthusiastic about learning new things. I admire my students because they are motivated to become a better person and to achieve all their goals.

My Project

VersaTiles would be a great addition to my classroom. The VersaTiles are student-friendly. Students solve math problems, match the answer in the answer case, and once complete they flip over their case and check their answer. This will help my students improve their math skills in an engaging way and allows them to take ownership of their own learning.

VersaTiles makes math more engaging to students in a fun way.

This kit will be very beneficial to my students because they will get the practice they need with immediate feedback. It will also be a great resource to use because I will not have to spend extra hours planning for what they are going to do for extra practice. This project will provide my students with a wonderful opportunity to develop their mathematical reasoning in a fun and engaging way.
