My Students

As children, we may have been taught that "sticks and stones can break our bones, but names can never hurt us." Unfortunately, that is simply not true with my students. Children who live in poverty, like all children, deserve to be treated with respect and in a manner that preserves their dignity. The words we use to describe and label children do matter.

My students live in poverty and their school is labeled as being in the "hood".

I wouldn't trade my students for anything in the world because I love them and they love me back.

My Project

We need dry erase markers, erasers, and printer ink to print the problems for them to work daily. Students write the problem, work the problem and I check their work. Working your problem with dry erase boards is an easy way to see your mistakes and correct them at your seat. Students love using the boards instead of wasting paper.

Math is a daily concept that needs to be written down, changed, erased and worked again.

We need supplies for working math problem over and over at our seats on dry erase boards until we are expert mathematicians. I have 100 students and using dry erase boards saves lots of trees.
