My Students

My students are an inquisitive bunch. The majority of my class prefers math and science over reading/ language arts. They are kind, caring, and motivated to become successful individuals. They are unique in their personalities as well as their learning.

Despite obstacles that may come their way, each one of my students is deserving of a great education and through their tenacity and dedication they can achieve whatever they set their minds to!

My students attend a Title I school, where over 70% of them have free or reduced lunch.

My Project

This will be my second project. Some of the resources that are going to be purchased are new ear buds. The students will be able to better focus on their computer programs and make learning gains. My students have so much to offer and I know will rise with the help of generous people such as yourself.

Another item we will be purchasing are manipulatives such as pattern blocks to better understand fractions.

Introduction to fractions often comes difficult to 8 and 9 years old. By using hands on activities all types of learners will be able to better understand fractions. Any help that my students can receive will set them up for a path of success.
