My Students

I am an eighth grade math teacher in Chicago Public Schools. I am entering my tenth year of teaching and my second year as a math teacher.

Over ninety percent of my students come from low-income families.

Several of my students are first generation Americans; ninety-five percent of the student population is Latino.

The school itself is old and has little funds for resources. The school was built in 1876, making it the oldest school in the neighborhood. It is a Pre-K-8 building with a little over eight hundred students.

My Project

The structure of my middle school math class consists of students participating in 'centers' daily. Centers are designed to give students an opportunity to learn, practice, and build upon mathematical skills/concepts in a nonthreatening environment. In groups of six, students travel to different centers in the classroom and complete various assigned tasks.

The three Chromebooks I am asking for will support my goal of having a math center that is technology based.

In the technology center, students practice math skills on educational websites, such as Khan Academy or Stride Academy. These websites are adaptive programs, providing an individualized learning experience that targets problem areas and builds foundational skills through self-directed online practice.

Technology alone is an important tool students need experience working with and it will make a difference in their preparation for the future.
