I am a New York City Department of Education middle school teacher. I have been working with the Department of Education since 2003. I currently work in East New York, Brooklyn. My school is a Title I school identified as a “School in Need of Improvement”. My students are special needs students who are labeled as learning disabled. My students are from the surrounding low-income neighborhoods and 93% receive free lunch. This upcoming September I will be teaching the eighth grade. My ultimate goal is to have my students increase their reading skills and have them reading at grade level. My students are at risk in their reading performance for a variety of reasons including learning disabilities, such as attention deficit disorder (ADD) and dyslexia, or other economic and language-based difficulties. If these students are not given an opportunity to improve their reading skills they are, as studies show, more likely to be truant and drop out of school. Students requiring special education have not succeeded with traditional classroom methods. These students need to be bombarded with different techniques involving the auditory, visual, and kinesthetic modalities to reach them, to motivate them, and to put them on a level playing field with non-disabled students. This year I want to give my special needs students an additional interactive method of learning reading, writing, and mathematical skills. I am interesting in obtaining engaging literacy and math activity books, literacy and math games, books on video cassettes, dictionaries and thesauruses.
