My Students

My students are bright young men and women with great potential! Our school has approximately 1100 students in grades 9 through 12. We have a very ethnically diverse population over 80% of our student population classified as minorities. We are 100% free lunch, so most of my students eat both breakfast and lunch at school each day.

I teach math to students with a diverse range of skills and knowledge.

They often need one on one attention throughout class to help them stay focused and fully engaged in class each day. Math can be intimidating to many of my students, so I try to work with them individually and interact throughout our class time to help them become better problem solvers and give them confidence in their mathematical abilities.

My Project

My classroom needs four additional graphing calculators to provide each student with access to technology in my classroom. These graphing calculators will be used in my classroom to help students tackle difficult graphing assignments, as well as master Statistical calculations.

Utilizing this technology on a daily basis will better prepare my students for taking the ACT and SAT, as well as for college coursework.

Most of my students do not have access to graphing calculators at home because of the expense. Graphing calculators are an awesome tool, but can be intimidating to students if they are not comfortable using them on a regular basis. Providing this option for my students will help them get ahead and give them up to date technology to help them succeed.
