My students need staplers and tape dispensers that actually work! Duck tape and heavy duty tape are needed to post all their awesome math and art work up on my walls!
My 8th grade classroom is one that welcomes all students from diverse backgrounds and challenges them to see the real world applications of mathematics. I dare students to loose their fear of mathematics in order for them to see/understand how it will be useful in their daily and future lives.
My 8th graders continue to surprise me everyday.
They are truly remarkable because regardless of what I send their way put they put forth the effort, hard work, and dedication. They help each other achieve goals. They motivate each other to persevere through difficult tasks. Most of my students endure many personal battles outside of school, are reading/writing at a second grade level, and have grown up believing that they are no good at math. As an educator, my responsibility is to make sure my students feel safe, lose their fear of math, learn to read/write, become critical thinkers, and persevere in achieving self-set goals and class/state goals. After all, their successes are my successes. I try my best to be always being there for them whether it is at the finish line of their cross country meet, the bleachers at their soccer match, or in the audience listening to their reclassification speech.
My 8th graders are incredible. They rise to all the challenges I throw their way. I am excited to incorporate writing, reading, and more critical thinking into my daily lessons, activities, and class discussions because although working in a low-income community and teaching the intervention classes has many challenges, I am determined to make a difference student by student. The staplers will be used for students to staple their homework together before turning them in to the basket and having student work posted in the bulletin boards. The tape dispenser and duck tape will be used to post student work up.
It is important to display student work up on the walls, windows, doors, and any space available.
Not only does their work lighten up the room, but it creates a warm and welcoming classroom where students feel at home.
