My Students

Our school is an elementary school that is one of three Regionally Gifted Centers for English language learners in Chicago public schools. Numerous students are bilingual, and many immigrated from various parts of the world. Students at our school are encouraged to embrace each other's diverse backgrounds as well as to celebrate and foster their own heritage and uniqueness.

All my students are supported and motivated to succeed based on their unique strengths and weaknesses.

An emphasis on the arts, native language, high expectations, and use of technology helps students develop into well-rounded individuals. A variety of before and after-school programs are used to develop these core ideas.

My Project

My students have such a wide rage of interests and ability in math class. Differentiation has been a useful tool used to address these varying level of skill and motivation. I often group students to maximize learning. When we break into small groups, students are expected to work together and help each other through difficult concepts.

The one thing that gets students to work well collaboratively is a white board in front of them and a dry erase marker in their hand.

I can't quite explain it, but it is as if a white board and a marker have magical powers. I myself always use a white board as well when I pull a small group of students to reteach or work one-on-one. All tasks just seem that much easier.
