Next year, I will be teaching regular 8th grade math and 8th grade high school credit geometry. I will also have a math intervention class of students significantly below grade level. As you can see, my students vary greatly in both motivation and achievement level.
Together, my students build a classroom community where they learn to value each other and realize each student contributes something unique.
We create a comfortable yet focused environment because each student has worth beyond measure and deserves a safe and inclusive learning environment.
I will have much larger class sizes next school year. I actually need 32 of these desks; however, I'm starting with 12. These triangular desks have ample work space and room for student I-pads. They also can be grouped multiple ways.
These various grouping options will allow students to work individually, with a partner, or in a small group.
Students will easily be able to communicate with each other when necessary and share ideas comfortably. Whether students are solving problems, working on a project, or taking a test, these modular configurations will accommodate my classroom needs. This supports our focus on a comfortable and inclusive classroom.
