My Students

Our campus is well diverse in an increasingly growing population. I teach middle school math students including seventh and eighth grade algebra students. When movement is incorporated into student learning, students learn more by staying engaged. Stations are regularly incorporated into lesson plans when possible to continue teaching with differentiation. Middle school students also love when they are able to work with the teacher in small group rotations. Adjusting the teacher to student ratio is vital in teaching in today's classroom!

My goal is to teach to different learning styles and provide differentiation instructional support to my students.

It is extremely important to provide engaging lessons to my middle school math students. My students come to school energized and ready to learn every day! They enjoy movement and hands-on-activities. A comfortable learning environment will lead to more student engagement, which means more success!

My Project

Chromebooks are used in our math classrooms and enable self paced learning using different software and alternate learning methods. Many students also have oral accommodations in the classroom. Software applications allow me to record spoken questions for assignments and tests for specific students. Students use the classroom Chromebooks to aid their testing needs. As not all students have access to the same resources, headphones are not always readily available to every student for use with the Chromebooks.

Students need durable headphones to facilitate learning without interrupting their peers.

Differentiation has been one of my goals the past few years. I want to continue to teach to the needs of my students and their different math levels. These headphones will allow specific students to work on different assignments which include videos I create to support their learning. The headphone splitters also allow students to share a Chromebook if needed and listen to the same videos and resources.
