My Students

I am a Special Education teacher in a low income, high poverty neighborhood in San Antonio Texas in a Title I district. I provide direct special education services to the students in my campus.

My student all have different cognitive needs who depend on small group instruction and differentiate accommodations.

The kids are inquisitive and energetic bunch who encourage me to strive in creating a fun learning environment. My goal is to do everything I can to help them become actively engaged in learning every day.

My Project

My caseload of students range from 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who come into the special education classroom to work in a small group setting at various times of the day. Its an ideal setting since distractions are reduced allowing the student to stay on task and optimize their learning potential.

This would give all the students an opportunity in selecting what seating arrangement would work for them in small group instruction in keeping them engaged in pursuit of their academic progress.

The ultimate goal is to give the students the power in selecting what seating arrangement works best for them to be able to obtain academic success.
