My Students

At my school I teach a wide variety of students in terms of academic achievement levels and socioeconomic status. The 2018-2019 school year has not yet started, so I'm not sure exactly what my students will specifically be like yet. Demographically speaking I know that my school is low performing on state-wide standardized tests and that our population is on the lower end of the socioeconomic spectrum. Our school is located in a rural part of the state with little to no extra money allotted for student resources.

The students in my school are needy in that a large portion of them need nurturing adults that will provide a living example of successful, positive, and educated human beings.

A lot of my students do not have positive role models in their life, so the teacher is the mom, the nurse, the therapist, the friend, etc.

My Project

My project with help students connect their thinking to visuals. This connection makes abstract thinking become more concrete. Research done by Jo Boaler at Stanford University supports this project.

Linking pop cubes come in sets of 10 made up by 10 cubes.

This will support their number sense development as well as their geometric development. Students will have a tangible, visual model of numbers they are working with. These cubes will also support working with geometry subtopics such as surface area and volume.

Funding for school supplies is limited, so having math manipulatives for individual students is next to impossible. My students need manipulatives in order to progress in their mathematical development.
