My Students

My students are beyond amazing! We are at a Title I school in Las Vegas, where many students believe New York or Paris is just a few miles away on the strip. This has to change!

I have adjusted the way I teach from a text, or a set curriculum, to teaching to experiences; my students have never soaked up so much information in all my twelve years of teaching.

We use challenging vocabulary words each week and thrive to find multiple ways to use them, whether it be watching a live feed of a lady "coax" an abandoned puppy from under a house (this went viral), or having a Glow Party to learn about odd and even numbers.

Our favorite was "traveling" to Italy for lunch and having to fix the menu that had no punctuation! I have never been so excited to go to work each day and my students that have attendance problems in the past are actually coming to school!

Please help us out..these kids are "going places!"

My Project

Classroom transformations are the way to go! The overall growth with student enthusiasm, vocabulary, and their capability to learn have been life changing not only for them, but for me as well... and all from adding just a little "magic." Many of the transformations are simple and consist of setting up a restaurant, adding a few tablecloths, and turning on some music. As you can see, this one is a little more expensive for my teacher salary, but would be unforgettable.

Learning CAN be fun; I'm requesting materials to set up a pizza parlor as we master fractions using actual pizza and carnival supplies to have a test prep carnival.

My students will walk in to our classroom set up as a pizza parlor. Not only will all the decorations be up, I'll speak a a little Italian, blast some Italian music, and we will create pizza fractions until we have them mastered. What will they work for you ask? Their own personal pizza of course! Our carnival will be much the same way, except they need to complete test prep activities to unlock a carnival game. I would have loved to learn this way as a kid!

Please donate what you can to make this happen for my students! We will all appreciate it more than you know, and share the love with others too.
