My Students

Many of the students I teach receive special education services. I enjoy working with them so much because they value the help I give them and are always excited to see the results of their hard work. They are particularly excited when I add music, texts, or videos that appeal to their interests. Sometimes that’s just what I need to get them geared up for a great lesson! I am always pumped up when I see how far they come from the beginning of the year. Their persistence and drive to do well motivate me to give them my best.

My Project

Many times we ask for the smallest things and although we receive some, it’s barely enough to get us through the first month of school. I hated to see my students come to class without pens, pencils, highlighters, and sometimes even notebooks and folders. Much of these costs came out of my own pocket and this was an overwhelming task to keep up. These supplies will ensure that many of our classroom stays clean but also that our classes start off strong and that all of my students are prepared and ready for the next amazing lesson! Any help would be appreciated.
