My Students

Because My High School is an urban school, my students come from an incredibly diverse background. These students must face considerably more challenges in life than students in less urban areas, from much needed infrastructure support in the school itself to disenfranchised home lives. Everywhere these students turn they see challenges from the inequity which seem systemic to their lives.

But when I see them in class, I see their belief in themselves to achieve whatever they set their minds to.

I witness their daily struggles. I see how difficult it is for them to deal with their individual stresses. And each day I see how much they need me and the support of the teachers who care about them.

My Project

Graphing Calculators will transform our classroom. Many students lack the pre-skills to perform basic math and online calculators are encumbersome for most. These graphing calculators will allow for a greater versatility in the classroom and allow students to perform the essential tasks needed to reach the highest standards of the Common Core curriculum.

These calculators will help level out the inequity that they currently face.

With each calculator students can freely move through IBL style station rotations without worry of the abilities in math. Students will be able to compare graphs of various real world examples in their classroom which will allow for their success in school and in life.
