My Students

My students are a lovable set of kids who enjoy life! Many come from difficult situations and a tough neighborhood where there are a lot of factors pulling them in every direction to do the wrong thing.

When they come to school, it is often difficult for them to switch into learning mode without the right tools and materials.

As a school, we hope to help our students by giving them an excellent foundation for their further education. My students hold high hopes for their futures, and I hope to equip them to hold themselves to high expectations for their life.

My Project

Teaching mathematics is a hard, but rewarding job. This year we have seen a lot of growth in our students mathematically, and would like to continue to grow in our knowledge and capacity to make sure that students are learning at higher and higher levels.

Mathematical mindsets is a shift we continue to take in our teaching.

My goal is to utilize the math manipulatives with small groups of students to do more focused learning. The resource books are to do small group learning sessions with other teachers so that we can continue to grow in our capacities. The games will help us build number sense and fluency with kids in a fun, interactive way.
