My Students

I teach 164 amazing 9th graders in Detroit. Our school is a Title I school, and 100% of our students are eligible for, and receive, free lunch.

Due to a longstanding teacher shortage in our large district, my students begin high school woefully unprepared for the rigors of high school level mathematics.

Many have always failed their math classes. I have roughly 170 hours with them to get them up to grade level and enable them to handle the math they need for graduation and beyond.

Ninety-five percent of all the school supplies and technology my students use has heretofore been supplied personally by the teacher, or via donation.

My Project

We use interactive algebra motebooks in our algebra classroom. These notebooks are full of guided notes, foldable references, and other enticements to keep the students fully engaged in the learning process.

To make these notebooks, we need paper, and brightly colored paper is even nicer.

We are almost out of white copy paper, completely out of colored paper, and all out of glue sticks. We cannot continue our interactive notebooks through the rest of the school year if we cannot replenish this paper and glue.

Our school's supply budget is very low, and my principal never expects 9th graders to use as much paper and glue as we do. We don't want to run out, because then we'll have to go back to boring old notes and textbook exercises. We learn better when we can fold, cut, color, and glue our math notes.
