My Students

My students attend a Title I school in eastern Connecticut. We are heavily urban, and 80% of our students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.

My students are amazing!

They are eager to learn and know that someone truly cares about their dreams and ambitions. They need a positive influence in their lives. A view of the world outside of their urban area is what I want to provide for them.

"You are the true dreamers, and dreamers accomplish wonderful things." -Jaime Escalante

My students are dreamers and feel they are not able to achieve them. I believe in all of my students and know that if they put their mind to it, they can accomplish anything they would like to do.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I like to keep things both simple and exciting and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

The use of whiteboards and binders in my classroom are daily activities. Helping students become organized and stay organized is a challenge. Providing materials for my students will help them gain a sense of routine and process, especially in math.

Using the workshop model in math, focusing on student centered learning, my students work together on whiteboards and in their binders to develop conversation, diving into learning as soon as they enter my classroom.

The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work.

When students work together to solve problems, they have individual color markers to identify their work. Using this method, students apply their own understanding in a much stronger, more confident way.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand without concern over whether or not their materials are going to work. Keeping their materials in their room provides each student with supplies daily, enabling greater learning and much stronger academic achievement.
