My Students

We’re located in southeast Cleveland. Many of our students come from disadvantaged backgrounds. However they don’t let that get in their way of learning. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. I try to incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to get to watch them learn and grow.

My Project

Many of my students struggle to grasp abstract concepts in math. They have shown great success when they are able to get their hands on manipulatives. The use of manipulatives help connect the bridge from the concrete to the abstract. My students also thrive on using literacy to help make connections to their learning.

The materials chosen for this project will be used to help students become strong mathematicians.

The books will be used during whole group mini lessons and will be available for their reference during independent learning. The bins will allow students individuality by storing their materials so that they can have access any time that they.
