My Students

As an 8th grade teacher in a suburban/urban district, I get the opportunity to teach a wide variety of students and get to see them change and grow over the course of the year! Many of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. They are inquisitive and long for unique learning experiences.

I teach two different levels of 8th Grade Math - a co-taught 8th grade math course with 75%+ special education students with varying needs and an Honors Algebra I course that prepares students for two state-standardized tests.

We work very hard all year to prepare for standardized testing, so I end my year with a unit on Hidden Figures - a story that teaches the students about powerful women in STEM careers.

My Project

After state standardized testing, I teach a unit based around Hidden Figures. We do a variety of activities including reading part or all of the Young Readers Edition, completing projects, and watching the movie. Each student completes a short essay on their area of research and they share out with the class.

I would love to be able to have a copy of the book for each student in my class so that we could read the book together!

The powerful connection between the story of these women at NASA and careers in STEM is a great culminating unit for 8th-grade​ math.
