My Students

Foster a love for Mathematics through literacy by traveling the world! Shapes, measuring, counting, equations, help our math lovers find all sorts of fun ways to explore their passion through good books.

We would love to read just for fun and let a love of math lead to a love of reading.

Our school serves students in grades Pre K-8 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers, and a safe learning environment. In one school year, our school performance score went from an F to a C. The teachers and the scholars are consistently working had to our goal to prepare our scholars for success in high school, college and beyond. WE LEAD THE PACK!

My Project

The materials I am requesting will help the scholars in my classroom develop a love for reading through Mathematics. My scholars will learn how to transfer the skills that they learned in ELA, Social Studies and Science into the world of Mathematics by having a "Math Library" at their fingertips. I would like to bring the Mathematical concepts to life through the world of words for the scholars to make real-life connections. This project is also to assist me with my Graduate course at the University of Holy Cross. I am pursuing a Master's Degree in Instructional Leadership with a Reading Specialist concentration.
