My Students

I teach just north of Boston in a city called Everett. Our students come from all over the world. Many of them speak multiple languages and a large portion of them have just arrived in the US and are learning English.

A majority of our school is economically disadvantaged, though they are rich in culture and experience.

Academically, our students struggled prior to the pandemic. This year we are seeing severe gaps in content areas. The social-emotional needs of the students are also substantial. We have a lot of work ahead of us and welcome any support we can. Thank you for considering us.

My Project

Our school has seen deficits in number sense in all grades. The math teachers have petitioned for and received a new math curriculum by Greg Tang. The curriculum is very straightforward, student and teacher-friendly. We are requesting these manipluatives to go alongside this new curriculum.

We will use these materials to increase participation and give every student a chance to respond.

The number bond shows the connection between addition to subtraction. The unifix cubes are easy to use and allow students to break apart and combine numbers. We're hoping to develop strong number sense for younger students that will carry into higher grades.
