Deming 2017 Melanie Alfaro Jane Foley classroom

Math teacher Melanie Alfaro gives Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, a tour of her classroom after her surprise Award notification. Alfaro employs a multitude of instructional strategies in her classroom, including active engagement and collaborative grouping, and is trained on AIMS3, a state dual-language program that supports English learners. The school doesn’t have a gifted program, but Alfaro makes sure advanced learners stay challenged with appropriate course work and encourages higher-achieving students to mentor those who need more help. She immerses her students in data, setting individual and whole-class goals, charging students with monitoring their own progress, and holding family classes to ensure parents are fully equipped to support their children’s efforts in math.
