My Students

I am a special education teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district. The majority of my students receive free or reduced lunches and come from an ethnically diverse background. All of my students are diagnosed with a disabilities which affects their ability to access the curriculum at the same rate as their peers.

Reading may not come easily for my students, but each book they read gets them closer to independence!

Having issues ranging from specific learning disabilities to intellectual impairment, every student needs to be met at their instructional level and moved forward at their own pace.

My Project

My special education students are inspired by books that they can read. There is something special about a new book. They also like to be the teacher and show their thinking within their small group guided reading lessons. A large dry erase easel and individual easels will support my fourth grade students when they are doing word work, having direct instruction, and when "writing about reading."

Donations of these books and teaching materials will help low-income, struggling learners renew their excitement to read.

These children have to work extra hard, because learning does not come as easily for them. I am excited for my students to have materials to support their success that has been especially chosen to meet their individual needs.
