My Students

My students are a diverse group of seventh graders, each with their own background knowledge and experiences. The daily struggles and challenges they face outside the four walls of my classroom, never stop them from learning and striving to be the best versions of themselves.

Scholastic Math Magazine “brings the outside world in” by allowing students to apply their knowledge to new contexts and situations they may not have the opportunity to experience.

In my classroom, I incorporate instructional centers that allow for differentiated learning, in order to meet the needs of all my students and create independent learners. My ultimate goal is to help my students understand how a strong foundation in mathematical content will prepare them for the future challenges they will face as they continue their educational journey.

My Project

“When are we ever going to use this? Why do we need to know this?" These are the questions that plague middle school math teachers on a daily basis! Utilizing Scholastic Math Magazine will enable my students’ inquisitive minds to piece together how math can be applicable in practical circumstances.

My goal with Scholastic Math is a not only to expose my students to a great resource that will connect multiple subject areas to their mathematical learning, but also to help boost their math confidence and motivate them to fully apply themselves on a daily basis.

Scholastic Math Magazine will help my students to become successful, independent learners.
