My Students

Math Intervention is an elective course for all grades Kdg-8. I see students once or twice a week to support their math skills. I have more freedom than regular classroom teachers with the curriculum. I design activities to support the skills that students in which students are weak.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

Students in my building are the most diverse in the district. I have students from all around the world as well as a wide variety of special needs. Students from Nepal, Africa, and Latin America as well as the U.S. learn together despite their various language abilities. The special needs students range from mild cognitive issues to full medically fragile, such as cerebral palsy.

My students are all special in their own way. They are eager to learn, eager to do well and a pleasure to work with. I try to engage them in multiple ways to reach their learning levels and find ways for them to grow and achieve.

My Project

I believe that children today are poorly educated in personal finances. Students are unprepared in managing their money, budgeting and making their money work for them. I have created a project for my 7th and 8th grade students to learn about all areas of personal finance.

My project starts with basics about money, earning and saving, wants and needs.

The program will then build with budgeting, planning and different ways to save or invest. My emphasis will be on how to become responsible money managers.

The workbooks will serve as a guide and the various money games will be a fun way to practice using money related problem solving. Students will also be exposed to using checks and balance registers. They will also research various careers and jobs to discover the differences in education requirements and income levels.
