My Students

After 10 years of working at my previous school, I'm excited to start a new adventure in a new Public School. I'm excited to learn about the children that I will be able to teach this year. My position will be in a bridged Self-Contained classroom with special education students in grades K through 2. Through the years I have learned the importance of teaching special needs students with visual aids. My students will also need individualized instruction to meet their IEP (Individualized Education Program) goals. It is my passion to reach every learner in order to ensure their success. My students will need many supplies that are not usually offered by the school. I look forward to finding a way to provide my students with the access they will need to succeed.

My Project

The students in my class would benefit from having a variety of literature in our classroom. My students absolutely love Mo Willems books!

The children are laughing out loud as I read to them and they are learning to read while growing a love for reading!

Children need many opportunities to listen to books read aloud. This is a crucial part in learning to read. Another aspect is having books the students can begin to read on their own!

The Brand New Readers Series allows an opportunity for the students to begin to read on their own while enjoying reading. These books allow the children to feel successful and enjoy the reading process. My students would benefit from have an assortment of literature!
