My Students

I am a math support specialist teacher in a rural high school. The school has just under 1,000 students that range from 9th to 12th graders in courses from Algebra I up to Advanced Mathematical Decision Making. The math inclusion class setting allows students who need extra support in math to receive the services without having to be pulled out of the classroom. The support classes are for those students who need a smaller classroom setting with 1:1 assistance.

Current district data indicates that students entering into the 9th grade struggle with mathematical problem-solving.

As a new teacher, my goal is to increase student achievement in the math department.

My Project

Our class project came to me one day when I needed the students to make note of some important vocabulary. I knew that if they did not notate it, they would forget it. When I asked if they had highlighters, almost every student said no. I then grabbed all my highlighters from my desk and issued them out. I realized that I was still short by two.

Every student should have basic school supplies.

For various reasons, some were not able to get highlighters for class. This project is to help my students take amazing notes that they can use to study. I love to see a colorful notebook. That tells me that my student finds the information important and wants to remember. I want to help my students be the best mathematicians they can be.
