Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

I am spending my second year teaching with twenty-five of the most creative, talkative, and energetic third grade kiddos I have ever met. My kiddos are almost entirely from East Africa, and either their parents or the kids themselves are immigrants. Since this is the case, many of my students are SLIFE (Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education), and most are English Language Learners. These kids are full of questions and I love working hard to answer them each day.

Everyday, I have a moment or several, that remind me exactly why I chose to become a teacher.

My kids are worth every late night, early morning, and the extra little gift I can find them.

These students have opened my heart to what I can do for them and the joy I share with them every time they succeed. Recently, we learned about text structures and text features. Nothing has made my heart happier than when my students come to me, eyes wide and excited when the book they chose from the class library had one of the features we have learned.

My students deserve the best and that is what I want to give them!

My Project

My students are hands-on, which is a very good thing. Learning math is a dynamic process, one that has steps and tools involved in it. I love teaching math and I love being able to share tools with my students! My students deserve the very best and using these sort of math tools, brings concepts to another level and provide more pathways for productive struggle!

I am excited to have tools from this site to provide my students with the best education they can receive.

I want to be the kind of teacher who allows their students every opportunity to succeed, and to make every connection they can with the real world. This means using math tools that are representative of things students encounter in the "real world".
