My Students

Kids are fun. Getting to spend the day engaging kids in conversations, teaching them life skills along with written curriculum, and knowing that each and every day I have the chance to make a difference in someone's life is what drives my passion for teaching.

Big hearts, small town values, and perseverance are defining characteristics of the kids in my class.

We are from a relatively small district in a rural area in Missouri. Our district is comprised of several small communities that have all of their students bused to Odessa for school. More than half of the students in our 3-5 building are from low-income households. Within my third grade classroom of 24 students, there are both regular and special education students.

My Project

Fractions are one of the hardest concepts for students to learn. Third graders are not only learning basic fractions but they must also understand equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. Many students are overwhelmed at grasping the basic idea of fractions.

Turning Lego blocks into tools for learning fractions would ease the stress level of many students!

Lego blocks are a toy that many students have played with. By building on their knowledge of Lego blocks and giving them the opportunity to work hands-on with Lego blocks to learn fractions will help make fractions easier to understand for many students! Please help me turn Lego toys into math tools!
