My Students

Welcome to my first-grade classroom. My school is located in Washington state at a Title I school. My 23 students are hard-working, thoughtful, and respectful learners but are unfortunately in a school that is severely underfunded.

My students and their families come from many cultural backgrounds with more than half speaking English as their second language.

With the increasing demands of grade-level standards, I am unable to give my students the experiences they deserve to have in the classroom. Please help these students exceed state expectations and become well-rounded human beings.

My Project

Many of my students and the students in my school, year after year struggle to learn math. I want to be a math teacher who can help inspire students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and confident in their math abilities.

With these professional development books, I can deepen my understanding of math content and provide the proper supports that my students need to be successful in math.

Math books like Young Mathematicians at Work, It Makes Sense! Using Ten Frames and using Hundreds Charts, as well as Math Matters are books I can read and learn what exactly needs to be taught in math and also how I can teach it well. At our school, we rarely get any training in math!

Students deserved a qualified teacher that can help them better their education. Please help bring these resources to my classroom to help myself and my students learning soar in math. Thanks in advance.
