My Students

My students are wonderful, happy, fun students who come from a neighborhood that sees a lot of violence and tension both in their community and on the news. We are a neighborhood right in the city of St. Louis. I work with urban ESL students that are eager to learn the language and grow as new participants in our school system. It is an amazing group of sweet students stuck in the middle of a rough neighborhood.

Our students are so resilient, more than they should be at this age, and I believe with the proper supplies they'll keep being resilient and reach success in life as well.

My Project

These materials will help create more visuals in our Math classroom and in our Math centers. Working with a big population of ELL students visuals are KEY.

We will be able to color code "like terms" in expressions using the highlighters, and use the table top dry-erase board for the teacher intervention center.

The anchor chart paper will be used to create visual representations of vocabulary words and the pencils are all we can use when working with math. I'd like to use the copy paper for printing guided notes and for the students to create foldables they can easily find thanks to the bright colors and use as references.
