My Students

My students come from a diverse population. They come from various cultures and economic statuses. I have a variety of learners ranging from gifted, autistic, ADHD, and ESOL. My kids love to learn new math concepts. My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging technology and learn better kinetically!

Each of them has the potential to be the best that he or she can be.

They come to school each day ready to learn new things and excited to grow socially and academically.

As educators, it is our responsibility to meet our students where they are and elevate them to the next level.

My Project

Our project consists of a variety of games and activities that will keep my students active, interested and motivated. Something besides a video to occupy their time on those days where we cannot go outside because of the weather. The giant games such as Jenga, 4 in a Row, Tic Tac Toe and UNO cannot be played while sitting down, so they will encourage my students to move around then entire time improving those large motor skills. These games will encourage them to take turns and play with each other instead of watching a movie or asking to use the computer during recess.
