My Students

Without question, the students in my Algebra and Honors Algebra classes are EXTREMELY bright! This is what sets them apart. They have been learning at an accelerated pace and crave the knowledge that a challenging class presents. They are always willing to put in the hard work and get great satisfaction out of problem solving. It is fantastic to watch them work both independently and with their peers to derive solutions. It amazes me to watch them troubleshoot, correct themselves, and correct each other.

It takes a great amount of work ethic to tackle a high school level course a grade level or more ahead of your peers.

They must have a deep understanding of the mathematical prerequisites to hit the ground running. Their work ethic must include the tenacity to stick with a problem or concept until it makes sense. The willingness to spend more time on classroom discussion and daily homework sets them apart.

It is very easy to see that they are most likely the future engineers, scientists, doctors, programmers, businessmen, nurses, developers, and undoubtedly leaders in whatever path they choose. I am super proud and grateful to teach each of them.

My Project

The integration of technology into the mathematics classroom has had many changes over the years. Calculators are not the only type of technology anymore. Once a student has understood the mathematics concept, algorithm, and computational skills, technology can help students achieve fluency and make abstract concepts more concrete. One of the reasons I am so interested in having a classroom set of Chromebooks is that I recognize how technology can enhance both my teaching and my students' learning.

Students can receive instant feedback when problem solving, and they can directly interact more with algebraic ideas through technology than with paper and pencil alone.

Given that the implementation of technology in classrooms is dependent upon that which is available, having my own classroom set of Chromebooks would greatly benefit each of my students, as I could provide instruction to them daily via this avenue. My greatest goal is that students learn the content and then are successful in their upper level math courses.

Effectively implementing a technology-integrated approach should ultimately increase students' performance results on assessments and allow more content to be covered.
