My Students

My students are a group of the kindest and most respectful students I have worked with in my seven years of teaching! When I refer to my kiddos, I refer to two groups, and AM and a PM class They make teaching a joy and are always ambitious in their learning of new mathematics concepts!

One of my favorite moments in math class is when we start off with a concept that can prove to be a difficult one to grasp!

After the introduction, the core lesson, interactive games, one on one with partner and teacher, as well as the assessment...the most rewarding moment is when the light bulb goes off and the kiddos realize it might have taken some work, but we did it!

My Project

The materials that I am requesting for my third grade mathematics class are materials that over the years I have wished I had access to when presenting the specific skills. Many of the materials are large enough for all to see when learning from their desk as well as magnetic so they are easy to manipulate by any child on our class white board. I feel as though these materials will give the students the hands

-on experience to build a concrete understanding that they will use for years to come!

The kindness pencils are just a little extra! I love to give my kiddos pencils throughout the year while I am promoting kindness! What better way!
