My Students

MSP is a great school with amazing staff and students. I’m so privileged to call it my home this year! My students are bright, funny, energetic teenagers. They enjoy learning and connecting with others. They are hard workers and make my job fun!

My school is full of amazing families and businesses, who work together to create a safe, positive community.

I make it my mission each year to recreate this atmosphere in my classroom. Through hands-on projects, flexible seating, and problem solving my students learn how to work together and find confidence in themselves... all while learning new content!

My Project

This project covers several areas of my classroom. One of the largest items is barstools. My classroom is full of flexible seating options for my students, some that I received through Donorschoose, some that I purchased on my own, and some that were donated to me by friends and family. Most of these items were made for elementary students and have been with me for years so they are in desperate need of being replaced. Other items on this project will help my students make sense of math using manipulatives. For example, we need tiles to teach topics like square root and Pythagorean Theorem. Another item I am requesting is a speaker. Unfortunately, my classroom does not have speakers so I'm unable to show videos or do interactive activities with my students. I'm also requesting a document camera so I can model problems and solutions for students through the smart board. Lastly, I am requesting a few basic items like pencils, scissors, and rulers. These are items that my students need, but we don't have enough of.

I'm so excited to get these items in the hands of my students and make math more meaningful and fun for them!
