I love my students. I live for my students. I learn from my students. At night, I spend my time on my computer, researching ways to help them better understand the concepts that allude them. My school is in the city; the community is one in poverty. Sadly, once these kids get to the grades I am teaching, 3-5, I see them begin to give up. Yes! These are 8, 9 and 10 year olds, giving up! From Kindergarten, they've overheard whispers that there was something WRONG with them- they know that they are in the LOW reading group- they know the 1s on their report cards are cause for shame. Students with learning disabilities learn differently. These children struggle to maintain basic, foundational knowledge, lessons that we learn fluently without thought. It is my goal to help these students gain some self confidence.
