My Students

My students come to our school because of our focus on sustainability in our environment, social-emotional well-being, and education, just to name a few. I am the lone general education mathematics teacher in our 100 student middle school, but within those 100 students' minds are 100 different ways of learning.

With a mixed population of both general education and special education students within a general education classroom, a need for alternative seating and a more dynamic, movement-based classroom is a necessity.

My students love to color, listen to music, interact with their peers in small groups, complete project-based-learning assignments, work on game-based learning on their computers, but they can do all these things while learning mathematics.

My students are an eclectic mix of cultures, races, ages, beliefs, and most-importantly, mathematical skill levels. These students care about their environment, can have group discussions about hard-hitting issues, work on their social-emotional goals with their peers via Positive Discipline, and love to be challenged.

My Project

Any type of organization will always create a better learning environment for students. Add that organization in with storage capabilities, note taking tools, and self-grading materials and anything is possible.

Our students need organization and the proper note taking and workstation tools in order to be successful in mathematics.

The newly acquired whiteboard tables we have are a huge success with students, but we need more white board markers in order for all students to utilize the tables to their maximum.

The colored pens are used for our note taking and for when we dissect word problems in math class. We look to circle and underline key terms and numeric phrases in order to create a better understanding of the problem.
