The students at my school are incredible. They come from 4 different community schools to the high school for a fresh start. They have different ranges of mathematical knowledge but they all give me 100% everyday. They may struggle through some problems but their face lights up when they finally figure it all out; and that of course is why I love my job.
Some of our students have tough home lives so school is an escape and I do my best to make math class an enjoyable and safe environment.
At the beginning of the year I always tell them I want them to hate math a little less than they did last year. So far, our students are finally getting it, they are making connections to the real world, and understanding the basic concepts.
I absolutely love my students, with all their personalities they make each day a new and exciting adventure. I just want to give them what they deserve: a great education, a better understanding of math and technology, and a teacher who they know cares.
I teach Algebra in a high school outside of Philadelphia. My school district is Title I so a lot of my students' parents cannot afford to purchase graphing calculators which we use everyday in class. Unfortunately, the few I have left are incredibly old, some buttons are gone and the screens are cracked.
I want to provide my students with technology to help them succeed.
With your help I can give my students a new and exciting piece of technology that will most definitely have them excited to come to math class. I want to teach them not only math but financial literacy as some of them will not see it in their other courses. I truly cannot wait to see their faces light up if we can get these calculators. We are requesting 10 Graphing Calculators.
