My Students

This year, I have a class full of energetic and eager 2nd graders! They deserve the best possible learning environment to help them grow and succeed as I know they can achieve so much!

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela

When in my classroom, we are all scientists, teammates, authors, mathematicians, artists, dreamers, and world-changers. My students work every day to better ourselves to better the world we live in.

My Project

My second grade students are at all different levels in math and, therefore, they require a variety of math manipulatives to support and challenge them! Research shows that utilizing math manipulatives helps more quickly guide them towards mastery of math concepts.

"The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics."

Along with math manipulatives comes the need for organization. The storage included will help keep our materials organized so my students can be self sufficient and retrieve materials as needed. It will also help keep our classroom running smoothly by ensuring everything is always in its place!
