My Students

I teach at a Title 1 school in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma that serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, my goal is to grow my students.

My students deserve to grow intellectually, emotionally, and creatively.

My goal is to develop my students to become creative thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners. My students are always eager to learn and have high expectations for themselves. They strive to be tenacious, leaders, and curious.

My Project

Dry erase boards will help my students in multiple ways. Since the dry erase boards are blank on one side, there are endless number of ways for me to use them. I like to show my students how to work a math problem and then I like them to try to work a problem on their own, this will cut down on papers used. The other side of these dry erase boards have the X-Y coordinate graph on it. This is hard for my students since it is a visual concept. By having the coordinate plane on one side, my students can practice plotting much easier. Sometimes my Smart Board doesn't work the way it should, so I have to have another way to teach math skills. Having a giant protractor and giant X-Y coordinate plane will help me teach these skills easier.

My students deserve to have tools to help them understand the skills better.

It is hard to teach angles to students on a small protractor. They cannot see the numbers or where the lines are. It's hard to teach the coordinate graph since the lines need to be straight and even. Having a big coordinate plane and protractor will bring many benefits to my students.
