My second grade class consists of 12 special need students; their disabilities vary from Mentally/Emotionally Handicapped, Speech /learning impaired, Autistic ADHD and ADD. Our school is Title 1 with 100% of students receiving free lunch. My children are from a low socioeconomic single parent home. They are faced with many challenges but they remain eager to learn and grow. My goal is not only to help my children reach academic/personal success but to become productive members of their community. I want to create an environment of learning that is inspiring, safe, comfortable and fun. I want them to explore the world through words (books). Help me inspire my students by becoming a partner in their learning. Lets create a classroom that is comfortable, a library with books that challenge and inspire. Tablets that will enhance learning(reading/math games). Thanks
