My Students

My middle school students are considered economically disadvantaged. 100% of the school population receives free lunch. There are few parents who are actively involved in school activities. Students often do not have anyone at home to help them with assignments.

This year, our school purchased devices so that all students have a device.

However, many students do not have access to adequate high speed internet services at home. Many students do not have their own computers at home and a large percentage do not have access to the internet.

Students have little to no exposure to technology once they leave our school. This makes ensuring my students are able to compete in a global society extremely difficult.

My Project

After more than a year of virtual learning, I am so excited about my students being back in the school building! I loved seeing their faces on the screen each day, but it is not as great as seeing them in person every morning. This year has been another year that requires innovation and adaptability as my students continue to persevere through their educational experiences.

I want to make sure my students have a strong year in mathematics, however, I recognize that their are some social and emotional learning experiences that may take priority until students become adjusted to life outside a screen.

I have requested Teachers Pay Teachers gift cards so I can purchase activities that will provide learning experiences that will encourage my students to be critical and abstract thinkers, as well as citizens who are able to articulate their emotional well-being.

In addition, I want my students to be able to demonstrate patience, support, respect and love for others around them so that they can take the lead in making the world a better place.
