My Students

My students come from all backgrounds and demographics. Each one is a unique individual and worthy of having an education that is fun, exciting, and successful!

I try to incorporate games in math to make the learning fun!

Watching their faces light up when something finally clicks, makes all the hard work - worth it!

Because these students come from all walks of life, I need to keep them engaged and wanting to come to math class, games do just that!

My Project

How boring is sitting at your desk doing math drills? But, turn on a black light , add some color glow sticks and give them the same math drills- WOOHOO! It's a Glow!

Complete an equation correctly and pull a "Jenga" game piece "SURPRISE " they forget they're learning!

It is amazing to see how they will become different learners when they don't realize they are working towards a goal. Games are an inexpensive way of keep all learners engaged and on task.

Transform the classroom into an operating room, a rain forest, or any number of things with a game and a tablecloth. Kaboom! Engaged!
