My Students

My goal is to make math class a place students long to be. I see each student as an individual and want to provide them with interesting, relevant, and exciting materials to use in my classroom.

New to teaching, but I not new to kids.

I am just starting my teaching career at 48 years old. I chose to enter the urban core to teach and nurture children of great need. It is my desire to implant in them a sense of champion and courage in conquering the societal stigmas that congest their lives. My students are living in shelters, with foster parents, and with distant relatives; their parents have been lost to drug addiction, suicide, and incarceration. These children deserve more than their withering neighborhood taxes can provide. Please help me to help them!

My Project

The Scholastic math magazines are a new product that I have seen and dreamed of being able to provide my students. These magazines will provide activity the students will thrive on, look forward to, and learn through with each use. Group activities that allow students to choose articles and report to the class will inspire and give students an opportunity to learn while engaging in a social project.

My students think of themselves as the "leftovers"; they don't believe that people consider them important.

By receiving this subscription from a donor they will know they are NOT leftovers, but achievers and dreamers that can achieve. I had something as simple as colored pencils that a friend provided the classroom; my students were inspired to work harder once they knew someone cared enough to provide materials for them.
