She likes adding some motivation into their math lessons every day but specifically on Mondays.

She says it helps to get her students week started off right.

Curran’s hope is to help her struggling learners not to feel singled out by getting that extra.

She wants them to walk away feeling confident knowing they are making positive moves in their academics.

“This motivational Monday is not just for me it’s for them. We motivate each other every day so it’s just not for them it’s for me. We check in with each other and make a point to get together,” Curran said.

For her Donor’s Choose project Curran is requesting games, multiplication flash cards, multiplication grids, and items to fill her treasure box for her students.

Curran says school is hard enough during these times, so she hopes to help her math students understand that they’re not low performers because they are coming here.

She says they’re motivational movers who just need a bit of reinforcement and some encouragement.

“If it was able to get funded nevertheless would my students benefit and want to come to me for math. There’s something that will remind them that look what happened this was funded. We’re earning something else and it would fill both buckets on both sides for sure,” Curran said.
