My Students

My students are awesome! I teach 6 classes of freshmen, totaling to 98 students. These students are amazing, I know most people will say that about their students, but I really am telling you the truth!

My school that I work at is one of the most diverse in the United States.

My school has more than 70 different languages spoken and is very low income. For many of my students, school is the only safe place in their lives. Some do not know where they are going to sleep at night or where their food is going to come from.

My students come to school not trusting adults for many reasons and I have to work hard to build a solid relationship. Once those relationships are formed and the students trust you, they will love you forever! I love seeing my kids move on to the next grade level because that is a huge accomplishment for them! They deserve the world!

My Project

My students do not have a lot of resources that increase their learning. I have asked for dry erase paddles, markers, and erasers for my students. This is a great way to quickly assess students' conceptual understanding. Students love using whiteboards to show their skills and it helps me decide whether I need to give them more practice or not.

These materials will greatly enhance their learning in my math classroom!

I have also asked for a class set of headphones. I have my students watch a lot of videos and many of them need headphones to listen with. They get easily distracted if they hear other videos playing around them, and headphones will allow them to be more focused and stay on task.

We do a lot of activities where my students are required to draw pictures or I am given pictures from my students, and the students want to see their work displayed! The laminator would be great to preserve their work so I can keep it forever and use their work as examples for the following years. Also, it gives my students some confidence in knowing that I kept their work and wanted to make sure it stays looking good!
