My Students

I am an 8th-grade math teacher at an urban institution in Henrico County, Virginia. Seventy-five percent of our students qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch. My students are resilient and thrive with positive relationships built with our faculty and staff. They are creative, capable and hard-working, though the method and environment in which they best learn vary greatly from student to student.

For most of my students, math has always been a challenge - but with the right resources and meeting them where they are academically, they learn to use math as a metaphor for life: that with hard work and perseverance, a solution can be found for any problem they face!

I work in a collaborative classroom environment, with both exceptional education and general education students. While all are capable, many of my students function best when given an environment with a variety of options for learning. By allowing choice in the classroom, students learn to advocate for themselves and to embrace their unique learning style and needs, to help them be successful.

My Project

I work in a collaborative math classroom which integrates both exceptional education and general education students. I push a growth-mindset in my classroom and work with students to help them learn to advocate for themselves and their diverse needs in the classroom environment. Many students struggle to engage fully with learning due to attention issues. Standing laptop carts will provide these students with an opportunity to stand and move while learning, and will help them recognize how important it is to learn to advocate for themselves and their needs. These laptop carts will also allow students to work in small groups while standing and to collaborate with each other in a flexible learning environment. Many students struggle to view math as anything but rigid; these will allow many of my students to learn how to be "math geniuses" as I call them, by making the math learning environment work for them!
