My Students

I love that my students are increasingly inquisitive. They aren't afraid to ask questions about concepts, activities and even everyday life. They have even questioned my decision to teach at my former high school. They believe in me in a manner that moves them to encourage me to move beyond the classroom walls. That's when I help them see just how much they matter to me and to the world, despite our limited classroom resources in a competitive, ever-changing world.

I watch my students advance at a limited rate due to the lack of resources, which can unconsciously affect their confidence in a negative way.

They are courageous enough to try again each day to meet my expectations in a subject area that has for some time provoked much fear. I truly admire their willingness to move forward in believing in me even when they doubt themselves. My students accept responsibility, encourage me and their peers and look forward to new challenges in the spirit of optimism!

My Project

Students feel included and important when the teacher and classroom are equipped and welcoming. Effective tools enhance student understandings of mathematical concepts and build confident teachers and students. Confidence is contagious!

Resources such as construction and butcher paper, allow more attractive representations of student gallery work.

Those works are supported by coloring utensils, neatly printed guidelines and even functional calculators, which will be powered by battery sources requested. Students absolutely love reflecting on their work as it is posted throughout the year. Even in high school, students feel a great sense of accomplishment!

As students work towards applying mathematical concepts, there is a thinking center in which I'd like to a table to post Scholastic Math journals for students to read and/or make personal connections that may not be evoked due to the lack of technology. In essence, resources build comfort and pride that equip students to explore beyond what the lesson has planned. Help our students soar!
