My Students

As the new school begins, I will begin a new chapter within my career. In the past, I've had the pleasure of teaching 8th grade math. I'd typically prepare myself for the next group as I get to know them throughout the school year. However, next school year I'll be on a new journey.

That path includes a group of students that may be afraid of what their future holds, but bold enough to face the challenge.

Other than the fact that I know my students will face changes, I want students to start their year off comfortable instead of afraid, which is common for beginning 6th graders. Although I may not know my students just yet, I want them to know their teacher knows what to expect and will do everything to make their first year in middle school a success!

My Project

Please help give my students a creative and vibrant classroom environment . Creativity still matters and can even be the drive most students need in order to perform at their fullest potential! With the tools and supplies included within this project (in additional to those you guys have help to support in the past) I will be able to provide my students with more creative opportunities and tasks within the classroom. Task that will make Math a more enjoyable and less distracting learning experience, which is something most students don't see everyday. Help make Math more fun and not intimidating.
