My Students

I work in a self-contained behavioral classroom with an awesome bunch of students. They all have varying needs and all require support behaviorally and academically. They all have amazing potential but sometimes feel down about themselves. I want to show them how special and smart they are.

I want to give them every opportunity to succeed by teaching them the skills needed to be successful in school and in the community.

I am trying to ensure that my students are confident in themselves and know how to advocate for themselves.

My Project

These scholastic math magazines will help my students explore different math topics that are both engaging and fun. They will learn how to correlate real world problems and solve for them. Having them make connections to real world problems will teach them valuable life skills that they can apply in their daily lives.

Most of my students dread math and I would to be able to provide them with activities that they can relate to and are excited to learn about.

I want them to be able to take the information they gain and apply it in their daily lives.
