My Students

I have 60 AMAZING students that I serve for math each day. They walk through the classroom door coming from different races, backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, and learning abilities. We are a family; we work as a team to reach our goals.

We live, laugh, and learn with an enthusiasm that is contagious.

These students are talented artists, musicians, writers, and historians. They are so eager to learn new things and take that learning and apply it to everyday life. We have all embraced the responsibility of learning and know that our futures will be brighter because of it.

My Project

I would like to provide my students with Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Pens, Colorsticks, Markers and Highlighters to replace and replenish the supplies with which they started with. They received pens with their Rocketbook Waves but they are slowly running out of ink. As we approach our spring break and last quarter for this school year, more and more students are finding that they need another pen, colorstick, marker or highlighter to continue adding to the pages of their Rocketbook Waves.

My students use this specific brand of Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Pens, Colorsticks, Markers and Highlighters to write notes, copy down important information, and communicate ideas and thought processes in math; which can then be uploaded to Google Drive and shared with me via e-mail.

The Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Pens, Colorsticks, Markers and Highlighters will allow my students to write in ink with the option of correcting mistakes. This is important for many students who fixate on perfection. They often insist on starting the assignment over instead of crossing out and continuing. These erasable pens will give them the confidence to forge on.
