My Students

I teach an amazing bunch of 6th-grade kids, who strive for more in the math classroom. The school provides a great sense of community where teachers know all of the children and families. In saying, I know there are many students who come from struggling homes and struggling families. The school and my classroom is a safe haven for each student and my goal is to give them the best education and support in all aspects of their life.

Collaboration, creativity, and passion is the drive my students show me in the classroom each and every day.

The kids provide enthusiasm through group discussion and their understanding of why the mathematics works to achieve a deep understanding of each concept.

The students strive with the technology integration used in the classroom to build the 21st-century learning needed.

Education is changing, which means my role as a teacher is changing, too. I work as a facilitator in the classroom, I open the curiosity and skills used each day through multiple ways of learning to master each specific skill. I pull different students into small groups to give them the extra support they need. I absolutely love what I do!

My Project

Mastery learning is such an important part of my classroom. The students will be able to work with me or my intervention specialist on concepts to reach them with a challenge or give them support on math concepts they are not strong with from previous years in math.

Students will explore rich activities using the software specific to this awesome iPad and education.

The kids will use the apps to create projects or interactive learning to help with 21st-Century skills they will use throughout the rest of their lives.

For one instance, using the iPad, they will use the app called GeoGebra to model geometry concepts connecting to the standards and extending the students learning above and beyond the normal classroom.
