My Students

Math in middle school is very important to a student's future success in math. Success in middle school math leads to success in high school math and then to success in college math (if that's what a student chooses to do). I want math to be a fun, engaging class so that students want to learn math.

My amazing 7th-grade math students are from a small, rural school district.

They are extremely kind to others, whether it is another student or someone in the local community. These kids give so much to everyone around them and I would like to be able to give something back to them to make their learning more engaging.

My Project

My students love to talk about math (they really do!). In doing some research online, I discovered a concept called a 360-degree classroom. This is where whiteboards are placed all around a room for students to use. Students are able to easily ask other students questions and compare answers to make sure they are on the right track.

My students are social learners.

They are great at talking to each other about how to solve their math problems. Students who are standing or sitting near each other are more able to discuss math concepts than students sitting at individual desks. When students help teach each other, their learning is increased. I would love to start adding quality whiteboards to my classroom so that my students are inspired to work together even more!
