My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching 5th Grade Math. I have sixty amazing students spread across three class periods, as well as an intense remediation group consisting of eleven girls each day. Our school is comprised of over 70% of economically disadvantaged students with limited resources for academic enrichment or remediation opportunities outside of the classroom.

In our classroom, we have a special sense of belonging to a unified family of support and encouragement to reach our maximum potential.

Whether it be a challenging math problem or an obstacle in life, my hope is for my students to gain the skills and confidence needed to be fearless risk takers.

My students take pride in their learning community, aim to please and can't wait to show what they know! I am truly blessed to have such an amazing group of kids this year!

My Project

Students continue to struggle with their multiplication facts, which causes academic barriers in almost every area of advanced mathematics. Students who haven't mastered their facts will continue to struggle with division, fractions and algebraic expressions. They are often reluctant to participate in classroom discussions in fear of being ridiculed for lack of fact mastery; therefore, causing students to fall further behind.

Providing alternative, yet fun and engaging, methods to multiplication practice will help improve multiplication mastery.

Hot dots are perfect for individual instruction/practice and allow students to take ownership in their self-check and monitoring progress. Math fact mastery can only occur with repeated practice and Hot Dots provide an excellent method of keeping students engaged and making learning fun!
