My Students

"And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed!" -Dr. Seuss. It's easy for people to underestimate my students. 80% of them receive free or reduced lunch. Many come from difficult home situations. Despite the adversity they deal with everyday I have never seen a group of students with more potential.

"You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself in any direction you choose." This quote from Dr. Seuss perfectly describes the fork in the road my students find themselves at.

Will they settle for the life they see all around them or will they fight for more? With your support I want to push these students to achieve more than they ever thought possible! I'll let the good Dr. have the final word. "Kid, you'll move mountains!"

My Project

The average student who shows up to my 6th grade math class is already behind before they sit down on the first day. We have a lot of critical skills that we need to work on before we can move on to middle school math. It's hard work and not always fun, but I am looking to change that.

We are going to use math games to help us bridge critical skill gaps and have fun doing it!

Games like I Have....Who Has? and Mathelogical Liar can easily be played in just a few minutes and help us keep our skills sharp. Turing Tumble is a great new game that teaches computational thinking which helps students to develop their problem solving skills.

Math is too important to be boring. Help us make it fun!
