My Students

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you always know you wanted to be that? My goal as a teacher is to expose my students to all of the different areas of education in hopes that they find the one they are most interested in.

My students are very excited when they are interested in a very specific area of interest.

It is hard to find this interest so I try to cover a wide area of topics to find the students that excel in there specific area. Help me find the life path that my students should explore and pursue!

My Project

My students will use these materials almost every day. We explore the topics of reading, science, math, social studies and much more on a regular basis. However, due to an increase on standards based tests our materials are focused on reading! I want to keep the learning alive past what we are told to teach and continue on in their interest. The power pen math quizzes will allow students to test their own knowledge while staying engaged and checking their own answers. The money and time components will let students to hone in on their skills in this area and excel. Many students work better when they are able to have more hands on time during independent or small group work. By allowing my students the chance to use all of these math manipulatives they will be able to focus on their interests and keep a meaning to their learning.

Help me provide the best learning experience for my students.

They are a good group of students who want to learn. These materials will allow them to keep learning while providing meaning to the information they receive. I thank you again for your support!
