My Students

I have had the wonderful opportunity to work closely with two classes of students this year to deliver 3rd grade math instruction. My students come from all walks of life and bring laughter to my day each time they walk through my classroom door.

I view each of my students as individuals with something new and exciting to add to my classroom and our school.

They are agents of change and their minds are open to all of the new concepts third grade has to offer.

Whether it is a hug to start the day or a "I don't want to go home" or a "can we have more homework" cry, they never fail to put a smile on my face even on the most stressful of days.

My Project

My students are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work on an online math program provided by our school known as i-Ready! At least two times a week my students log into i-Ready where they are greeted by their own "buddy" who walks them through a myriad of math concepts. This adaptive program changes a student's math level to meet them where they are so they are learning and refining their math skills. Headphones would greatly benefit my students so they can have more individualized instruction and better focus on the work given to them! When used, students will be more focused on their work as their "buddy" helps them through practice activities, lessons and quizzes.
