My Students

My 6th graders are bright and eager students. They love to laugh and have a good time. But they also work diligently through the challenges of math and aim to excel. We are a Title I school that has a history of poor academic achievement. Many of my students are DREAMers and English Language Learners. There are a lot of chronic socio-economic issues within the community.

Even with the many difficulties my students face, they are incredibly hard working and have ambitious goals.

They have beautiful dreams of being creators and innovators in their professions, leaders in their communities, and pillars within their families. It is a great responsibility and privilege to be their teacher and help guide them toward these goals and dreams.

My Project

Students will use the requested Mead composition books, scissors, and Elmer's glue sticks to create an interactive algebra notebook to take notes in, paste in foldable activities, and track goals.

The notebooks will be a great algebra resource that my students will create for themselves.

Interactive notebooks teach students to organize and synthesize their thoughts and have a portfolio of their progressing skills. Not only are they taking beneficial notes, practicing, and reflecting on the material, but they are also using that information as they work on future activities. Students take ownership of their learning through color and creativity. This creativity also sparks visual learning when they are expected to remember and apply the information at a later date. Students can use the notebook for years to come.
