My Students

My students come from a background and community where education is something that is looked at as none essential, and many of my students view it as boring. These students live in a community where many students are always only given the bare minimum to work with when it comes to their education.

My goal for this year is to start changing their perception and view of the educational world, by making it engaging and relevant for them.

I want to provide them with the best possibility to succeed.

My Project

These supplies will make such a difference in my students' learning, by providing them the opportunity to show and communicate the knowledge that they have to the world.

This year we will be writing our way into Math history!

To do this we first must have the basic supplies needed to truly show what we know. The pencil sharpener will be a great tool to sharpen our pencils so we can sharpen our minds! With the crayon sharpener, we can brighten up our minds and our Math work. My students look forward to showing the potential we have to our community and our world!
