I need math books to train the teachers of our children!
I certainly do care about measuring educational results. But what is an 'educational result?' The twinkling eyes of my students, together with their heartfelt and beautifully expressed mathematical arguments are all the results I need.
My classroom is located in Washington State at a Title I school. Students at my school are hardworking, kind, eager individuals. Many students are first and second generation citizens from Africa, South America, and Asia. Our differing cultures, backgrounds, economic statuses, and languages provide richness in the classroom, but we also face challenges. One challenge is that we are incredibly underfunded. At HVES, 80-85% of students qualify for free and reduced school lunch. There are so many experiences and learning we wish we could have with our students if only we had the means.
A math teacher is someone who inspires their students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers. Currently, many of my 26 students and the 675 others at my school are struggling to learn math. This can be attributed to us, the teachers, rather than the students. Math is my passion and as a lead math teacher at my school, I would love to spearhead professional development to help myself and other teachers grow in their practice.
With your help, I could get the professional development books into my school that would be so critical to helping myself and other teachers become better.
Students deserve qualified and educated teachers.
If we have better teachers we will see our students scores rise but even more importantly their understanding of math increase. Please help make better teachers so that students get a better education.
