My Students

I am so excited that you are visiting today. My name is Joy Engelbrecht and I teach in a small rural community in Texas. I love my job and my students. This is my 18th year teaching and my third year at my hometown school. I love teaching in this community because I grew up here and feel like I am giving back to the community that gave so much to me. I have watched these children grow in their academics and it makes me so proud.

Many of the children I teach come from low socioeconomic homes where English may not be the primary language.

By providing them with more hands-on activities and differentiated instruction I am able to create an individualized learning experience for them and they enjoy learning.

My classroom may never be the same because of wonderful people like you. I hope you will join me as I continually try to find great materials to support my students' learning in class. You make a difference!!! Thank you so much for your support! Mrs. Engelbrecht

My Project

Many of my students struggle with the concepts of place value in connection with adding and subtracting. I would like to get more manipulatives in their hands for them to use at home and at school. I would like to check out bags to the students any time they need to take the items home to work with a parent to get extra help with concepts from class. In addition to taking them home, I would like to have them in the hands of each child in the classroom when we are problem-solving daily and spiraling our learning concepts.
