My Students

My students are thinkers and problem solvers. They are full of curiosity and love working collaboratively to solve problems in our project-based learning classroom. They are active, social, creative, and engaged when they get to work together to solve problems. As a STEM-focused school, we encourage collaboration and problem-solving. Students come in daily excited to see what we are doing in class that day and ready to tackle problems as 21st-century learners.

My students represent a diverse range of backgrounds and have a variety of experiences to share in the classroom.

More than half receive free or reduced-priced lunch. We use our school garden and food pantry to send backpack snacks home with students over the weekends to ensure they have access to healthy food. School is their safe place and one where they know that they will have their needs met by caring and supportive teachers and staff. I serve a high poverty population and receive $275 a year to get the materials and supplies that I need to provide an engaging, hands-on classroom experience where learning math is fun and relevant for my 147 students.

My Project

"Mrs. V, when am I EVER going to use this? " I hear this from my students all the time. As a STEM-focused school, we are always looking to show our students all of the different places that their education can take them. They are excited and often surprised at the ways that their learning will help them "in the real world."

Middle School students are curious by nature and are always looking for ways that new information can be meaningful to them.

Scholastic Magazine is a wonderful resource that brings the outside world into the classroom and provides meaningful, high-interest literature that shows where content can be found outside of the school walls. In the process, it also allows for reading non-fiction text and practicing the use of mathematical problem solving and reading for content and understanding information in print.
