My Students

My Tennessee students come from a variety of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.

The diversity of my students is what makes our math class and school so special.

Each student brings their own experiences to add to our math discussions. They are enthusiastic and excited about math and trying new ways to solve problems. Every day is a new day to learn something new and celebrate our success with each other.

We are a hands-on class that uses a variety of strategies, tools, and games to learn about math and solve everyday math problems. My students are mighty mathematicians because enjoy math and are fearless when it comes to trying new things.

My Project

The basic items I'm requesting are used by my 60 mighty mathematicians everyday to create meaningful math models and representations. Students use dry erase markers to solve work on whiteboards and discuss their math strategies and thinking with their table partners. The glue sticks, scissors, and composition books are used to create math journals to help them commit their math learning to memory and to use as a reference tool when needed.

My students are most successful when they can practice mathematical concepts in variety of ways using a variety materials.

Every student is different and thinks about math problems differently. I love engaging my students in multiple activities so that every child learns in their own unique way and feels they can be successful and enjoy math.
