My Students

I love my Marvelous Math students! Since it's their 1st year in middle school, they arrive excited, and anxious at the same time. Often times, they come from elementary school struggling in Math, or not truly understanding mathematical skills and concepts. During their 6th grade year, it is SO important that they realize their potential in Math, and truly feel they can succeed, and enjoy Math!

I teach the sweetest, best students in the state of Texas!

After 28 years of Teaching, I STILL absolutely LOVE what I do every day! I have a passion for teaching, and love being able to share my love for learning with my students! My students represent diversity; ethnically and economically. The age range of my students is typically 11-12 years old.

My students are VERY appreciative for anything that Donors Chose is able to provide for them. My students LOVE getting funded for a project through They are in awe that people who don't personally know them would be so kind and generous to provide funds to help them. THANK YOU!

My Project

Math is ALL about making mistakes, using the eraser and learning from it. My Math classes NEED Pencils. These mini golf pencils with erasers are PERFECT for my middle school math students. Please help provide these pencils to math students who know that making mistakes is part of the learning process. These are the best size for the middle school math classroom because they are small and can easily be shared with students. DonorsChoose is the absolute BEST at providing exactly what teachers and students need. Any donation, no matter how small, is so appreciated. You wouldn't believe how excited students get when given a shiny new pencil.
