My Students

I love my new 6th-grade math students. My 6th graders are kids from the low income and immigrant neighborhoods of East Oakland. My students are predominantly Latino, Black, and Middle Eastern. Most of my students are English Language Learners. I have 15 students who have IEPs and receive IEP services.

I teach some of the most dynamic and curious young people you will ever meet!

I love to dive into math with my students when we can make our learning visible. When we can draw, diagram, model, and write about our math and problem solving we learn more and learn more deeply. Picture books, manipulatives, playing cards, dice, board games are a fun way for my students to engage with our math. Art and gamification of our curriculum increases student engagement and problem-solving.

My Project

I want to provide my 6th gr. math students with real-world, hands-on math experiences to help them improve and develop math skills. It is essential for students to know where we were yesterday, what we are doing currently, and where we expect to go in the future with our math learning.

I use my students' lives and our vernacular environment to help my students make deeper connections to the math we are learning every day.

My 6th gr. students have already started to learn about ratios, rates, and unit rates as well as beginning financial literacy. I use picture books and newspaper stories, board games, art projects, and video games to help my students learn basic math skills and overlay these skills on real-world problem-solving.
