My Students

I work in a middle school that serves the community around them and is also a magnet school. I have worked and taught some amazing students through the years, and have seen growth, maturity, and exploration blossom within these adolescents. Some of them struggle to have meals provided at home, some of them struggle with emotional trauma, some of them have two loving parents, some of them have aspirations to be pilots, some of them don't come to school with supplies, some of them come wearing the latest name brand item, some of them have anger issues, some of them are the sweetest, most kind-hearted individuals you'll ever meet.

I see all walks of life from many economic backgrounds, religious affiliations, ethnic identities, and home environments.

To say I serve a diverse population would be an understatement. I treat all of them as special and know that each and every one of them can meet and exceed their goals.

My Project

I'm trying a different approach this year to teaching my geometry students proofs. This is probably one of the most challenging concepts to comprehend for geometry students. My goal is to use Uno decks to teach them the process with something fun and engaging and a game they are already familiar with in order to connect it to new information.

Uno is a long time favorite for most students, so it should be a good, engaging activity to connect something not as familiar.

Students are competitive and can figure out multiple ways to win in Uno, which is how proofs work as well. There is not one correct path students can take to prove a theorem or a diagram, but there are ways to lengthen or shorten the process.
