My Students

My school is a large Title I school where eighty percent of the students live below the poverty line. My students are racially, academically, and economically diverse. Many of them face situations that no child should ever face, like being temporarily homeless. Yet, they are also hardworking, enthusiastic young people full of potential and possibilities. They have lots of life and energy.

They love to learn, especially in new and exciting ways, and they recognize that they are part of a larger, generous community.

Please consider helping me to make this their best year ever!

My Project

Financial responsibility is crucial for students to learn if they are to be successful in the future. Students must learn how to perform basic math skills in order to be financially responsible. Therefore I am seeking materials from Teacherspayteachers.org that can be used in stations to help with math skills. These activities will be placed in the plastic totes so that students will be able to take them to their table and work on them. They will include hands-on activities that cover all of the fourth-grade​ math standards.

My students LOVE station time!

They beg for it, including on their field trip days. I believe it is the time that they enjoy the most in my classroom. Therefore why not include activities that will be necessary for them in the future like being fiscally responsible. With your help, I can incorporate financial activities into my students' stations. Will you help?
