My Students

I teach and mentor predominantly middle school students in a school that is dedicated to personalized learning. My school is starting its fourth year in operation. We currently only have grades seven through ten but hope to one day have fully built out and cohesive middle and high school.

I teach students at a rising school of choice in northern California.

Students and families work with teachers to build a school that we can call our own. The students are as diverse as the community we serve, predominantly black and brown, about a fifth English learners, over half socioeconomically disadvantaged, and about 10 percent students with disabilities.

My Project

I've sat in a classroom for professional development with these posters and knew instantly that my students would benefit from the visual scaffolds. Attending to precision, a standard for mathematical practice, is challenging when math requires students to practically learn a whole new language. This is especially hard when some terms (such as term) have different definitions in math than they do in every day use.

Language matters in math!

As difficult as learning math terms may be, it is even harder for my Emergent Bilingual students. This project will deepen the diverse representation in my classroom because it will validate Spanish-speaking students' identities by having the translated key terms on each poster. Creating and curating a quality word wall is a worthwhile long-term investment in my students and school.
