My Students

My 8th-grade cluster is made up of students from a wide variety of backgrounds. In my school, over 75% of students receive free or reduced-price lunch. This means that many do not have the basic supplies that we take for granted.

Like all 8th graders, my kids love to create and explore!

One of my personal goals is to find ways to reduce my carbon footprint and use less paper in the classroom. This is not always easy in a math class.

Connecting science, technology, engineering, and math, (STEM) is so important and helps kids explore the concepts on a deeper level.

My Project

Children today need to think about how they can make a difference and help conserve our natural resources. In our district, change is happening slowly, but definitely needs to happen and the kids are often the leaders of that change.

Using Rocketbooks, they will reduce the amount of paper being used in the classroom.

With the implementation of computers in the classroom much of a student’s work can be digital, however, math work still needs to be done on paper. Rocketbooks make it possible to save paper while allowing the students to show all of their work when completing a problem.

The Rocketbook is a reusable notebook. The students do their work, take a picture with their phone and the pdf will automatic go to their google drive. They can then use a wet cloth to wipe the page clean and reuse the notebook page again. This an amazing advancement brings us closer to a paperless classroom.
