My Students

My students are a diverse mix of energetic, intelligent, and curious 9 and 10-year-olds who need resources to truly excel. My school is an urban, high-poverty school that strives to do what's best for the kids, but we often don't have the budget for the "extras", and by "extras" I mean basic supplies, books, technology, field trips, etc. These are the things that can make a significant positive impact on student learning and growth. Many of my students have had traumatic backgrounds, have learned English as a second language (ESL), or have families that struggle to simply put food on the table. Despite these challenges, they thrive when presented with the opportunity to do so.

My intention is to work each and every day to help close the opportunity gap facing the wonderful students in my classroom.

My Project

Like most people, my students are most engaged when learning in real world applications. They have a variety of dreams for their futures and whatever their hopes & dreams are, being proficient in financial literacy will be a huge benefit. They don't yet know how a company is run or makes money. The online Stock Market Game will give my students an opportunity to select different companies to invest their money in. The Stock Market Game will provide each team with $100,000 to invest with in a virtual learning experience. In teams, students will research companies and decide which stocks to purchase or sell just like real money.

Having an iPad designated for students to track their investments will allow teams to make financial decisions weekly.

My goal is for teams to compete against each other throughout the school year. Giving students the ability to follow how investments can fluctuate and how financial decisions impact their earnings will prepare them for their future.
