My Students

I have the privilege to teach some wonderful 6th grade students math this year. I have five regular math classes and one intensive class at the moment. Although our curriculum is math I strive to teach "the whole child" having our classroom "teach peace" (which stands for participation, empathy, accountability, commitment, and empower). Our students are from a low socioeconomic area of our district and our school is a Title I school.

My students have so much potential in them and I strive to help them reach their full capacity, turning them into the leaders of tomorrow.

There is so much growth that will happen at this age and our students encourage each other to succeed. I feel that I will learn just as much from them as they will learn from me.

My Project

I need a system that will allow me to easily know which students have earned a special reward. The cards will have the students keep up with an item (teaching responsibility) as well as reduce instant gratification with a delayed reward that they earn through consistent good behavior. This system of positive behavior will help the students focus on their good instead of negative consequences. The stamps will allow for more personal responses for feedback to the students. It will save time by being able to stamp papers rather than having to write on every paper. This will be an effective way to respond to how the papers are whether something needed to be completed or if the work was complete and accurate.
