My Students

In my mathematics classroom, we learn math in the context of living in the reality of our lives and community. It is exciting, challenging, and very rewarding to teach middle school math to my students. They are passionate advocates for themselves and immensely challenged by the circumstances they face. Many are new immigrants, English language learners, Special Needs students, and from low-income families and neighborhoods. Often they come in believing that math is not relevant to their lives. Some of them have harsh realities and challenges just surviving, let alone thriving.

They inspire me to be my best and to raise my capacities to inspire them to work hard and learn that they can master learning, master math, and thrive in this world with consistent focused work.

I am not satisfied with the status quo and that is what I work to inspire in them. The rewards of making a difference with these students really hit home and left me moved and inspired. I find myself often crying when I am really being with them.

My Project

Focus essential oils and humidifier-diffuser creates the exact learning environment we all want for students. This promotes calm, and distraction free engagement. It literally puts them in the mood to study. Along with classroom basics for productivity such as glue sticks, project boards, and graphing paper. Headphones are to help fill out our classroom set so everyone can listen in silence to the math learning software. Students love to reward their good work with self selected motivational stickers. This makes the whole process fun.

Students will cheer the arrival of these important learning tools into our classroom.

Having the basics like facial tissue and hand sanitizer takes care of their basic needs and lets them return to work quickly so they stay in the classroom learning instead of going out of class to the sink in the restroom. This is the reality of teaching.
