My Students

My students are excited about learning through projects and engaging in hands-on activities. Most of my students very athletic and have strong bonds with their classmates but have endured multiple forms of trauma that have been detrimental to their academic and personal success.

My students are very artistic and prefer lessons that include opportunities to build models or create a poster rather than just reading about those topics.

Most of my students struggle with reading as do most schools with similar barriers to a fulfilling education, so we rely on multiple forms of assessing student understanding.

As a school, we foster success by relationship building and creating a safe environment for all learners. Our students know that we care about them as learners and as future members of a productive community. They know the importance of positive interactions and are driven to achieve their personal and academic goals.

My Project

The students in my class use large whiteboards often, but the ones that I have are getting old and stained. The new, smaller clipboard whiteboards would be used in multiple lessons and include the entire class.

In my chemistry class, we use whiteboards to demonstrate our understanding of everything from drawing electron configurations to completing math problems on stoichiometry.

Whiteboards are an effective strategy to instantly assess student understanding and remediate common mistakes.

I know the whiteboards will be greatly appreciated by all of my students and I can't wait to see what other opportunities it will provide my students to dig deeper into the world of chemistry.
