My Students

My students are imaginative, hard working and fun-loving kids. They come from low-income households with limited resources for learning required math skills.

Since March 12th, my students have been learning at home.

School will be closed due to the COVID-19 virus for the rest of the school year. The district has stated that we are to teach new content matter through distant learning. This presents a challenge, as most of my students do not have access to supplies in their homes.

My Project

No pandemic will stop me from helping my students learn the skills they need to be successful.

My students were conquering difficult Math before school closures.

Now my living room is my classroom and my challenge has become how to teach them new concepts without in-person hands-on lessons. Therefore, it is very important that they have the resources to help them grasp the concepts and skills they need to succeed in the next school year.

What better way to not only learn, but conquer coordinate planes they the classic game of Battleship.
