My Students

My students are all special education students. I support 5th and 8th grade students who have various learning struggles. My students all attend general education classes and I will pull them out to assist as needed.

My students are great students who want to learn.

With the help of technology they are much more successful learners. Technology allows my students to learn at their learning level and enjoy learning at the same time. All of my students enjoy learning, and we are focusing on challenging ourselves to learn and grow everyday. Middle school is a fun time of life, and that truly describes the amazing students that I have the pleasure of working with!

My Project

These Power Pens and cards are great for motivating students. They are fun and instructional and give immediate feedback to the students. Students are able to immediately see results and make changes as needed.

They are a great way to allow the teacher to work with some students in the group, while others use the power pen activity for individual instruction.

They are a great tool for helping to manage group work while still giving the students an educational fun activity to do. They are also a great resource for small group learning and management. I have witnessed students learning and growing skills with these hands-on materials.
