My Students

I teach 5th grade math and science at a public school for all girls. We are an urban school with a high rate of poverty. Many students enter with low reading, writing and math skills. Our school provides a safe haven for our students while maintaining high academic standards. Many of our students achieve more than a years growth within a school year!

Despite a lot of progress there are still fewer females pursuing careers in physical sciences, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

When female students decide not to pursue these careers they deprive themselves of a growing job market and our community loses valuable mathematicians and scientists.

My job is to ignite female confidence and interest in math and science by making learning hands on and fun! My goal is for all my students to become mathematical/scientific thinkers, enabling them to become life long learners, to continue to grow in their chosen professions, and to function as productive citizens.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of their journey and success!

My Project

My classroom has very little storage. I am always looking for new ways to help my students organize their books and supplies.

An organized classroom is more successful because students are able to focus, be more productive, and manage their time more efficiently.

I have 6 table teams that consist of roughly 5 students each. The desks are arranged together to allow students to work as teams in small groups.

Two large storage containers will be stacked at the end of each table team. My A.M. class will use the top container. My P.M. class will use the bottom container. They will store their math manipulatives and hands on science items in the containers.

The multi-colored storage bins will be placed on the back shelf and will contain their books and research journals.

Thank you SO much for helping my students succeed!
