My Students

My students are fantastic and I love them! Our school is in a rural community quickly turning into suburbs with local development growth. We are a state award winning school, and we have been awarded several grants for arts infusion and curriculum.

Our teachers set high expectations for our students, and often they are met through hard work and determination of both teachers and students!

We strive to keep students engaged while keeping up the rigor as well as developing the whole child.

My Project

Our class needs materials to make our work stand out. We will use neon highlighters, lamps, flashlights, and wikki sticks to find evidence in texts and color code our math work. Using these neon colors for our work will help us identify the important parts of texts and mathematical problems. To make them really stand out, we will shine black lights on our work. These lights make the highlighted areas really stand out.

Highlighting information makes important information really stand out to students.

Using the materials from the project will give students a variety of ways to determine which information is important and how to use it.
