My Students

Our students are bright, energetic, and ready to learn! Our school is a Title l school where 68% of the students are on free and reduced breakfast and lunch.

Many students in our community have been displaced because of Hurricane Harvey and are living with family members and are struggling financially and emotionally.

Over half of our 850 students are English language learners and in the Dual Language Program. In this program, students spend 50% of their time at school learning in English, and 50% of their time at school learning in Spanish.

Even with all of the obstacles, our school just received the distinction of being a No Excuses University School and we take pride in encouraging our students to plan and work toward continuing their education after High School!

My Project

My students need hands-on experiences with mathematical concepts in order to develop a deeper understanding of math. When students are able to manipulate items it creates a more concrete understanding of math. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and hands-on experiences provide the support they need to learn efficiently.

After many hardships with Hurricane Harvey, it is important to give my students all the tools they need to feel successful.

Using math manipulatives not only builds confidence in my students, but also their ability to succeed in math for years to come. They will use the magnetic base ten blocks, place value cards, and realistic coins with partners which will also build their language skills.
