Hey Everyone! My name is Sam Rhodes, and I am currently working on my Masters in secondary mathematics. I was placed at Berkely Middle school with Mr. Bruss, and have the most adorable group of 6th graders ever! I have two LD classes, one regular 6th grade class, and one advanced 6th grade class.

Upon graduation, I hope to move to Camden, NJ and do inner city teaching. I want to create a classroom where students learn in hands on ways that peak their interest and allow them to take control of their own education. I want to make students feel comfortable, safe and open and make my classroom a place where students can truely be themselves without fear. I hope to make a difference in one of the poorest and most broken communities in the United States. However, I am definitely scared of not knowing how to reach some of the kids from tougher homes.
