My Students

My students come from challenging environments where aggression is often the answer to many problems. Some of my students have home, community, and other issues. Some of them have trouble interacting appropriately with one another, teachers, and administrators. These students have sometimes gone through some type of trauma, a divorce, or been the victims of abuse or neglect. Our district is 100% free lunch for all students.

My students come from high crime and poverty-stricken areas.

Basic necessities are not often a given. My students often feel as if no one notices them or acknowledges their positive behavior - only the negative. My students need multiple opportunities to learn and be successful in many different exploratory, fun, discoverable, challenging ways.

My Project

The textbook we use in class In order to be a great student you must take great notes. Notes taking is very important in a mathematics classroom. By writing down the problems they solve in class, students can use those problems for study by reworking them and checking their work against their notes. By taking notes they can write down the many formulas that they need for problem solving and use those formulas to help them become successful in mathematics.

Students will try harder to be successful in school when they are supplies with the necessary supplies and resources.

They are more attentive, they take notes, they participate in class discussions, and they are excited about learning. School then becomes a joy to attend and not just another chore.
