My Students

I'm hoping to inspire my students with technology and connect it to mathematics. We'll take on blogging, Twitter, video editing, 3D printing, Skype, and much, much more! My fourth-grade students come from a variety of backgrounds. Fifty percent of my students live in high poverty areas, and about 15 percent of them are English Language Learners from South Africa, Vietnam, Nigeria, Bhutan, and other countries.

Our school is a K-5 Vermont school that loves embracing STEM activities.

We put tools into the hands of students to keep them energized. My students are an energetic and inspired group of learners who love utilizing technology.

My Project

My students need dry erase markers for our whiteboard. Unfortunately dry erase markers are very expensive and we start to run out at this time of the year.

Instead of going back to paper and pencil, we want vibrant colors to do our math work!

Dry erase markers let students quickly and easily erase part of their work and then continue their math thinking. Since they are using oversized whiteboards, it also makes it easier for adults/students to see what they are working on. The choice of color helps students label and makes their math feel more exciting than just paper and pencil. Thank-you for your support in our math class!
