My Students

I teach 7th-grade math at a school in North Carolina. There are less than 1,000 students enrolled with approximately 50% of students receiving free/reduced lunch.

If I had to choose one word to describe my students, it would be: UNIQUE.

-"U" stands for Understanding. Things don't always go as planned and my students get that. This is something that I am so appreciative of!

-"N" stands for Nice. These students are overall very friendly. I love being able to see their relationships with each other develop as the year progresses.

-"I" stands for Interesting. Let's face it, middle schoolers are an interesting breed of human beings and my students are no exception!

-"Q" stands for Quality. I am consistently impressed by the quality and effort these students put into their assignments, across all their classes.

-"U" stands for Unique. Each student has his/her own characteristics that set him/her apart from the next student. No two students are alike... Even the twins are totally different from each other!

-"E" stands for Expectations. I expect a lot from my students and a majority of them exceed those expectations, which I am very proud of.

My Project

My classroom has recently become 1:1, meaning we have a classroom set of Chromebooks at all times. Since becoming a 1:1 classroom, I have been working really hard to create guiding video lessons for my students to help meet their needs.

I record video lessons to help meet the different learning styles of my students and to help make learning more student-paced.

My video lessons provide instruction and guided practice to the students at their pace. The videos allow students to hear my explanations and watch as I solve problems right in front of them. They also allow students to pause or replay the video as many times as they need. I also make the videos available on Google Classroom for students to rewatch at home or get caught up if they are absent.

Having a class set of over-ear headphones will drastically improve my students' learning when it comes to watching the videos I create for them. Not all students have their own headphones (or sometimes students simply forget to bring them) and it can be very stressful on them if part of the day's lesson requires listening and following along with one of my videos. Having a class set of over-ear headphones will ensure that each student can focus on and listen to the instruction and guided practice provided in the video lessons.
