My school is amazing with staff who love our kids like their own. Everyone works hard to help them reach their full potential, but with a 49% poverty rate, many come to us without the skills they need to start off on the right foot. Limited life experience and no basic skills make it tough to do well when you start off behind on day 1. I teach children with learning disabilities, children whose brains reason and process things differently. This year, I'm servicing kindergarteners who still can't count after 6 months in school, third and fourth graders who can't add or subtract, and much more. My job is to figure out how they process, and design their learning so they can understand. A multi-sensory approach is the foundation for their success. When they don't learn effectively from paper and pencil tasks, they need concrete materials to touch and move to get their brains to grasp the "number sense" or the concept.
