My Students

I teach 7th grade math at a high-need, at-risk, predominately Spanish speaking college prep middle/high school. We have students from 6th grade through 12th grade. I have three math classes where I teach 3rd and 4th grade math skills to 7th grade students while teaching them the 7th grade standards. My goal is to have them reach grade level by the end of this school year.

We won a $500 grant from Khan Academy Learn Storm and my students are thrilled that we are getting erasers, markers, and white board cleaner.

Even though this is a college prep school, most of my students are way below grade level and they need all of the extra help and support possible to bridge the gap so that college can be an attainable dream.

Our seventh grade is comprised of 75 amazing students, many of whom come from bilingual households. Their goal is not only to make it to college, but to finish college as well.
