My Students

My students are beyond amazing!

We are at a Title I school in Las Vegas, where many students believe New York or Paris is just a few miles away on the strip.This has to change!

I have adjusted the way I teach from a text, or a set curriculum, to teaching to experiences. My students have never soaked up so much information in all my twelve years of teaching.

We use challenging vocabulary words each week and thrive to find multiple ways to use them, whether it be watching a live feed of a lady "coax" an abandoned puppy from under a house (this went viral), or having a Glow Party to learn about odd and even numbers.

Our favorite was "traveling" to Italy for lunch and having to fix the menu that had no punctuation! I have never been so excited to go to work each day and my students that have attendance problems in the past are actually coming to school!

Please help us out..these kids are "going places!"

My Project

My students are typical 7-8 year old second grades that need to move! They learn best when they can connect activities to learning and are quickly rewarded for their hard work.

This Basketball Challenge will make learning engaging and fun while they master addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts!

As students complete problems and check for accuracy they will run through a skills course, shoot baskets, and compete against each other (and add up their scores at the end without even realizing it's MORE math)!

When assessments arise and they see the facts or problems they have practiced, students will make connections to our day and will hopefully be more successful! This basketball equipment like jerseys/scrimmage vest pinnies and a scoreboard can be used over and over again to review many subjects while also keeping my students active and healthy!
