My Students

My students are eager to learn and try new things. They thrive on being held to high expectations and set them for themselves frequently. They understand that the math they are learning this year is the foundation for the math they will learn next year and in years to come.

These amazing girls have triumphed in adversity.

No matter what they have faced, they continued to strive to be better students so that they can succeed with their goal of getting through college.

My Project

Earlier this year, we were able to fund a project to get class sets of white boards for the math classrooms at our school. The use of whiteboards is almost a daily activity in my math classroom. Using the workshop model in math, students solve problems with whiteboards for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. What becomes a problem is the fact that the markers never seem to last, erasers seem to disappear, and both need to be constantly replaced.

Students feel more successful and engaged when they have all the materials they need to learn.

By having the materials ready and easy to replace, I am able to reach more students more effectively. It also allows students who have trouble focusing the ability to not lose focus because they know the supplies are available.
