My Students

Our students are inspiring and fearless learners in the Santa Fe Community. We are a public charter school who bring in students based on an unbiased lottery system. My students come from all walks of life in Santa Fe with the uniting factor of a drive to accelerate in school. All my students are working on their leadership skills in our math class, in addition to their math understanding. Students in my class are all engaged in 40 hours of community service every quarter and are working to build a better community around them.

I have two middle school math classes and three geometry classes.

My mixture of 7th-10th grade students all strives to learn ferociously while in school. Many come from low-income families. While the school is not rich in funding, we have the highest expectations for our students. Every year, they show us that they can rise to these expectations

We were named the number two school in New Mexico by the US News & World Report.

My Project

We have a variety of needs for students to create constructions with hands-on learning in their math classes. The class would greatly benefit from a supply of protractors and compasses for students to create and measure geometric figures. Hands-on learning is necessary for many of my students to be able to incorporate and understand the material.

Though some students have protractors and compasses, others rely on the school to provide them.

Without these tools, students cannot practice and understand the importance of precise construction formation.

Individual dry erase boards and the Eggbert academic game will allow students a more inclusive classroom. Though part of our lessons include students going to the board, class sizes are too large to give all students an opportunity to practice and show their peers. Individual dry erase boards allow students to work with another in class and easily display their work.

This helps students to be able to participate without fear and interact with one another.

We are excited to use the Eggbert wireless game to organize students into teams and allow them to practice the math applications in groups while making the learning fun. The Eggbert platform has six buzzers which allow student teams to buzz in with their answers. Games such as this are a lot of fun in middle school and high school classrooms without the frustration of me, the teacher, not noticing who raised their hand first -- a frustration which happens for the students frequently, unfortunately.

We are, additionally, always in need of tracing paper and extra calculators.
