My Students

Our school is made up of about 800 students. We have a mix of races and socioeconomic backgrounds. We also have a large military population, so many of our military students come and go throughout the year. Our school, teachers, and students work hard each day. The school has received many awards and is a Blue Ribbon School.

I teach about 65 fifth graders each day.

The way the curriculum is set up, students don't really receive a heavy science instruction until 4th grade. I work hard to make sure that the students get as many hands-on experiences as possible. I want to help prepare them for the middle and high school curriculum ahead. I also try to make math fun and interesting for the students.

My Project

In 5th grade, a large portion of the skills we teach is decimals. These are important life skills as they relate to money and budgeting. Having one more Chromebook in this class would allow more students to have access to Khan Academy, Reflex Math and Zearn to work on their money computation skills.

Knowing how to manage money is a basic life skill that all students should leave 5th-grade mastering.

Thank you in advance for helping me help these kids prepare themselves for successful money management that could help them stay financially independent as adults. These decimal money skills are crucial!
