My Students

My students are hard working, determined, and good hearted students. They may struggle understanding complex mathematical concepts but always work hard to try and make sense of it. I do my best to make connections to real world examples which only motivates them to try harder. I love how my students not only show how much they care about the curriculum but also show their care for me as well. It reminds me why I became a teacher in the first place. They’re always asking about my day and helping me out whenever I need it.

My Project

High school math is not the easiest of subjects for many high schools students. In my class, my students are given the opportunity to guide through the curriculum in their own. I teach the class using a very old iPad. It’s taking teaching to a whole new level; doing things like easily taking pictures of student work and letting students pass around the iPad to write their work, explain, and teach. We need help getting a new iPad compatible with the pencil to enhance the experience with the iPad and make math a whole lot easier to work on the iPad using the pencil.
