My Students

It is hard to describe a typical day in my classroom because I like to mix it up a lot! It is my goal every year to challenge and engage students in a variety of ways, especially through projects and real-world examples.

My students come from all different backgrounds and it is really interesting to see them all learning together and from each other.

My students are honors students, so I have to always find new ways of keeping them challenged and engaged.

My Project

One of my goals this year is to get my students up and moving more often! My eighth graders love our flexible seating classroom, but even though the seats are comfy, I also want them to stand and interact with their peers to practice deep real world math problems and collaboration.

Research shows that standing helps to generate ideas.

I was inspired by a “Vertical Learning” video on Edutopia about a classroom that incorporates dry erase boards to facilitate student discussions. This fits in perfectly with my vision for my classroom and teaching style!

My goal is to use these whiteboards so that my students can be in groups of 3-4 and be able to demonstrate their thinking in this way. Help us take our learning to new heights!
