My Students

I teach excited Sixth graders math in an economically disadvantaged middle school. Over 60% of students come from low-income families. Like most sixth graders, my students enjoy being active and engaging in hands-on learning!

I am dedicated to providing a student-centered environment for success for my students!

Having your support in creating our learning environment means I am able to do even more for my students! Thanks to my generous donors, I've been able to make some amazing changes that have allowed my students to enjoy learning! We are helping my students develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime!

My Project

I recently got several board games through DonorsChoose and can't wait to add more! I have plans for starting family fun game nights!

We are requesting games - Start Your Business game, Managing My Allowance game and more - that will start conversations about math and financial literacy AT HOME!

Not only will these games help teach valuable math concepts and financial success strategies, but also give parents an easy opportunity to teach their children about making good choices and responsibility. Gains all around!

I believe that having the support and involvement of families is crucial to a student's success at school and in life. These games will benefit my students in more ways than just in the classroom!
