My Students

My students do not come from the best neighborhoods. They were born into situations and communities where success is not normally seen. For many of them, school is the only place where they feel safe and comfortable. It is my job to give birth to hope, improve their confidence and prove that with hard work everything truly is possible. I did not choose to teach; teaching chose me. Because of this, I am extremely passionate about being a positive and enthusiastic role model for all of my scholars.

My Project

My students are eager to learn in my room, as I try very hard to engage them in mathematics inside and outside of the classroom. Many times, they are pushed to discover things on their own and teach the class what they saw and how they came up with their own ideas. I push my students to teach others about the process they go through when attacking problems.

The materials in this project will allow me to engage students on a deeper level by allowing students to know present their findings from their seats if they don't feel comfortable standing in front of the classroom yet.

Some students are shy and this is a perfect way of getting them to present their work without having everybody stare at them.

This project will allow my students to become teachers on a whole new level, and use new technological advances to showcase their ideas.
