I have the honor or teaching a small group of unique students in Glendale. Our school is ranked as a high poverty school with 99 % of our students qualifying for free or reduced price lunch. I teach what is called a Self Contained Cross Categorical Academic class of typically about 15 students, Kindergarten to 3rd grade. The disabilities in my classroom range in severity. As you can imagine, trying to teach multiple grade levels at once can be challenging but somehow with our organized chaos, my Educational Aide and I make it happen. Each and every one of my students is making progress to meet their annual goals. Teaching my school has been a blessing because I know that even on the hardest days, I have little ones who come to school and love the consistency and love they get at school. Not only do I teach my students academics, but I try to push them to do their absolute best and show them that even though they may have a disability, they can do anything if they set their minds to it.
