My Students

My 118 seventh graders are just starting junior high. It's likely one of the hardest times of their lives, and we're working to still make it very enjoyable. My students come from across the area: students ride the bus, carpool 40 minutes, or walk across the street. They come from all over Salt Lake Valley and beyond.

My students are excited about math but need to be able to work at their own pace; I have the ability, but not quite the resources.

Since hearing about ways that they can use math in the real world, where seventh grade math is super applicable, all my students want to succeed in math. They've heard my stories about using math in managerial and staff positions and want to be able to do that too. Coming from different mastery levels and different learning styles and strengths, my students want individualized lessons with a personal touch.

My Project

Using these headphones, combined with tablets or Chromebooks, students will be able to view and listen to math lessons that I personally make for them based on their mastery level. I can teach math from elementary level to college level, but I can't be in two places at once. With virtual lessons, I'll be able to tailor my lessons to each cohort based on their learning style and current ability. Meanwhile, I can help my students when they need more in-person attention.

My students have the drive; we just need the resources to deliver personalized lessons when there is only one teacher.

With the technology to support them, they'll be able to push themselves to do their best at their own pace.
