My Students

Eager to learn best describes my struggling math students. They come from rural homes devastated by the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey. Our students have shown resilience to being temporary relocated due to our flooded school.

Yet when they walk in my classroom (currently a storage room in a borrowed school), they are excited to see what they'll be learning today.

The small group atmosphere meets their individual academic needs through a variety of strategies. They feel loved and accepted. It's our version of family---where we laugh, share, and learn. My students deserve it!

My Project

First graders learn math best by highly engaged, hands-on activities. My first graders need high quality math learning games to help close their learning gaps in math. With a bookcase, we will have space in our future portable building to replace class favorite games that were destroyed from Hurricane Harvey.

It's all about creating fun experiences with numbers!

Students cheer each other on through the positive environment math games bring. Not only do the games build on their math skills, but their self confidence as well. They make students excited to come to school because learning doesn't have to be drab---it can be fab!!
