My Students

My students are diverse learners from Washington, DC. They love engaging in academic discussions and the feelings of success they get when they persevere to solve math problems. My students are working hard to overcome math anxiety and are learning to love the challenge of math.

Our school celebrates the values of character, service, and excellence.

The students strive to exemplify these values and it is my privilege to work hard to support them in reaching their academic and personal goals.

My Project

My emerging mathematicians love to learn and have fun. Many of them enjoy reading but have a deep-rooted fear of math. A library of math literature will give them the opportunity to connect what they love (reading) to what they are learning to love (math).

The books I've selected for our inaugural math library cover a vast array of content from place value to proportions to Pythagorean Theorem.

They are written at a wide range of reading levels to meet the needs of English language learners, students with disabilities, and general education students. This math library will make the classroom a joyful space for all learners!
