My Students

As a special education teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district, my students are faced with social, emotional and educational challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they may face, I am looking to keep things positive and engaging for the students.

Our school is moving into the future, and we are constantly trying to give our students the best supplies, resources, and experiences we can!

This can include resources to encourage constant learning for such a diverse group of kids.

As a teacher, I find myself continuously working on improving the students' self-esteem, perseverance, and academic abilities in a fun and creative way. The students are energetic, creative, and interested in learning all they can.

My Project

I am constantly looking for innovative ways to enhance my classroom for my students. Although there are amazing and new technologies that can enhance the classroom I am still needing the basics to make our everyday lives run smooth.

I have found that behind every great teacher is their list of "must haves" that they reach for on a daily basis.

These items can include pens, glue sticks or even stamps that allow the students to express themselves and what they know in a fun way. I would love to incorporate more hands on manipulatives in my classroom with the stamps and magnetic letters. I also find myself constantly searching for tape and glue to replace the never ending need in my classroom.
