My Students

We are part of a large district and have a high ratio of special education, economically disadvantaged, and English Language Learner students. At this time, our hard-working kids need additional support to pass the End of Course Exam that is necessary to graduate.

As their teacher, it is my desire to procure all the items and manipulatives I can to encourage my students' motivation to learn in a safe and comfortable environment.

Anything that might benefit them, is something I am willing to try, although finances might not always allow.

I have the best students in the world and want to teach them to the best of my ability so they have the skills necessary to be successful in school and life. Many of the educational philosophies today are to teach with our students' interests in mind, and that is my desire.

My Project

I have been teaching for 19 years. I have had the pleasure of teaching all grades and levels in high school. I have a particular fondness for hard to reach and special needs students as well.

Every year I strive to do something for my students that is better than the year before.

Many times, these students are deemed hard to teach or deemed 'trouble makers'. I want to not only teach them but reach them! I want them to be excited about math and learning when they come into my room. In addition, in Texas, all students must pass a standardized math test to graduate and I have been chosen to guide many of these students in their repeat attempts at success on this challenging test.

Through the Ozobot Evos, I hope to engage students as they have never been before. The Ozobot Evos allow for technical thinking and sequencing beyond your standard steps to solve a problem but increase the fundamental math process skills as well. I want to specifically incorporate Evos to add elements as sound coding and ciphering that their advanced programs allow. They introduce students (and all) to unique and extensive computer coding and a whole new way of thinking, working, and even speaking. They will learn another language while developing their math skills!

I desire to increase their higher level and abstract thinking that can translate to their success in not only high school but math and life beyond our hallowed walls. My focus this year and next is to integrate more STEM/STEAM challenges to increase logic and problem solving which this project will do.

Please consider helping my students think beyond the pencils, papers, equations, calculators, and even computers into the beyond- where all of that becomes one!
