My Students

Since this is my first, full year of teaching and I am very pleased to have my students this year. My students are the reason why I go to work every morning with a smile on my face, well maybe after my first cup of coffee. When I have an issue or a problem, my students want to know what the problem is and how they can fix it. They show me that they care. That the reason I teach is for them.

Looking at all my students, I really love how some of them have opened up to me.

They trust me enough to share their personal lives with me. I am glad I have my students! They make sure that I notice them as an individual, instead of a whole or as a "Freshman". Somedays, it is hard to leave work with a smile, but I know my students expect the best from me, so I will always give it to them.

My Project

In my high school, we do remediation days to help reinforce concepts that the students do not understand in a subject. Since I teach Algebra 1, I want to teach them that graphing a line is helpful when you want to build a technology. Since all of my classes are at different levels of math I found different levels of technology that the students can build.

Having hands-on learning is the best way for a student to comprehend certain content.

For this reason, I wanted to use technology that the students have to build to help them understand different lessons in Algebra 1. My students would be thankful to see Algebra used in other ways than on a whiteboard or on a piece of paper.
