My Students

I teach at an International Baccalaureate (IB) school that celebrates the diversity of our students at a large public high school in Indiana.

In a typical class of 27+ I have students from a variety of different countries representing many different religions and cultures.

Our large school promotes tolerance and support for all who attend. Students here take pride in their work and support each other's success as we work to improve. We are extremely proud of them and excited for a new school year. We know that when they have everything they need to be successful at school, they are able to accomplish so much!

My Project

The materials requested will help start our second semester in math class on the right foot. Pencils, colored pens, folders, binders, and pencil sharpeners are all necessities in the math classroom. With over 150 students that come through my classroom, these materials go very quickly and often need replenishing. Please help my students by providing them with these basic supplies to start off the new semester.

My students are really motivated to prepare themselves for high school during this coming s coming semester.

Please help them get there by providing them with the basic math resources that are necessary for success in math class!

Second semester we start of graphing systems and the multicolored pens really help my students visually see their solutions. Plus, they're pumped to use pens instead of pencils for once in math class.
