Our school consists of some of the most inquisitive, friendliest students in South Carolina. The majority of them come from low or middle income families and receive free or reduced price lunch. As a result, many come from families that are unable to provide supplies regularly.
My students come from very diverse backgrounds but the one thing they all have in common is their need for differentiation.
As a sixth, seventh and eighth grade inclusion teacher, I am constantly working with students with varying abilities, learning styles and academic needs. They have the desire to do well and are eager to please.
As a special education teacher, I am often overlooked for basic, sanitary supplies as the beginning of the school year because I don't have a homeroom class. As a result, any supplies like tissues and hand Sanitizer are purchased by myself and aren't in abundance despite the numerous students coming in my room for educational support.
These supplies will allow me to promote a healthy, clean work space for my students.
Hopefully, this will help cut down on germs being spread and decrease absences from illness. As a result, my students will not miss out on vital instruction that causes them to scramble to catch up on material when they return.
