My Students

My students are kindergarteners from Detroit, Michigan who are striving for success. As they endure their first year of school, there is so much to be learned.

My students are little masterminds ready to learn something new everyday.

Most of my students come from low-income and poverty stricken areas, but despite the obstacles they face, they come to school each day with the eagerness to learn and the hope for better. It's my goal to help build and shape these little minds to achieve greatness.

My Project

With the growing STEM field, we need help with building STEM leaders. With these items, I hope to further my students' interest in mathematics.

Why did the boy eat his math homework?Because the teacher told him it was a piece of cake.

The large dice will assist with early math skills. With the "Printing Numbers Practice Book" and "Numbers Bingo", I hope to be able to help strengthen my students' number writing and recognition. We will use the kinetic sand on our number mats. The "Jumbo Magnetic Ten-Frames & Ten-Frames Magnetic Answer Boards" will help jumpstart my struggling math learners with the first steps of addition.

Lastly, we will use the power pens and power pen quizzes to help strengthen our learning with addition and subtraction, while learning through and being exposed to technology.
