My Students

I teach in a high school that is considered to be a high needs school where about 85% of my students get free lunch. Although they differ in their ethnicity and culture, they are similar in that they all have high expectations for themselves.

What they lack in economic stability they make up for in drive and determination.

They all want to be successful and work hard to reach our school goal of achieving 80% or higher academically. They want to make their families and teachers proud.

My Project

I am asking for copy paper, both white and some colored, to help my students create their math notebooks. With money being budgeted tighter than ever, textbooks are not considered a necessity. Well in math I think they are. So I have my students keep a notebook that will work for them in the future like a textbook.

This notebook will work for them as a reference in all future high school math classes.

We have a table of contents, unit organizers, notes and guided notes. It also helps parents so they have something to look at to refresh their memories so they can help their child. I try to make table of contents pink and their unit organizers yellow which is why I am asking for those colors. My students find the notebooks helpful in that they have something to look back if they forget but unfortunately I use more paper than I am allotted by the district.
