Our favorite chant is, "In our class, we try and try again!"
My students come from a high poverty school district where one hundred percent of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.
The challenges that face them at home are almost insurmountable.
Curious, excited and willing to work hard, my students love coming to school! They thrive in a creative environment where they help set their learning goals and are provided with multiple ways to learn and solve problems. Hard work is rewarded and relationships are built and nourished. My hope is to instill in each student a lifelong love of learning!
My students need math centers that are fun and engaging allowing for hands-on manipulation. My students arrived in my classroom to do math saying: "I hate math!" and "I can't do math". I want to use these hands-on centers to make math fun and exciting. I will use these in daily workshops to teach adding and subtraction, place value, and different strategies of adding and subtracting. my goal is to foster a lifelong love of math that will build confidence and change their words to: "I love math!", "This is easy!", and "can we do more math?" Together we can!
