My Students

My students are striving to do well. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging activities. They are in this high tech world, yet enjoy low tech activities too!

My high school students look at each day as a new learning opportunity.

I'm trying to keep the learning interesting each day. They truly appreciate the different modes of showing their knowledge.

Students in high school get bored easily, so when I mix things up they truly enjoy coming to class. It warms my heart when they tell me they appreciate the different activities in class.

My Project

Students have so much to remember for final exams in high school. I am wanting them to use Post-It notes and colored paper to help them remember math processes.

Students can use the Post-It notes and colored paper to remember important information.

They are students in a high tech world yet need to put things on paper to remember. When they write things down it stays in their memory longer. They also remember things when they have some snacks to tie into their memory. They are big fans of Goldfish crackers!

Students get excited when they use something other then plain lined paper. Studying for final exams can be so boring, when they write on different types of paper they tend to remember more. Their recall improves which allows them to move on to the problem solving part of the questions asked.
