My Students

My students love music, their cell phones, and talking. I work as hard as I can to leverage these things in engaging and innovative ways to keep my students interested in the topic at hand. My school is a Title I school with a large number of economically disadvantaged families. Our school was used as a shelter during Hurricane Harvey. It was the shelter my personal family would be going to during our mandatory evacuation, if not for family in San Antonio.

But today, my students are eager to learn and ready to conquer the world.

To keep my students moving and interested, I use a lot of activities that require talking and moving. Rarely are we sitting still and quiet. Practice is the name of my game, and I try to sneak it in at every corner.

My Project

We just started school and students are getting frustrated solving difficult equations. Colored pencils and candy could spice up our practice during class and honestly, I just always need pencils to loan out. They disappear so fast I wonder why students are eating them, the candy could help with that too. I give out peppermints on every test day. Our school gives out peppermints on standardized test day, but I believe in train like you fight, so my students need peppermints for every test. I appreciate your consideration in supporting this project, I assure you my students work hard and would love the supplies.
