My Students

My class is full of creative, energetic, hard-working students. They love cracking jokes, making art projects, and learning new things. They are very curious and are constantly asking questions. My students have big goals for their life, and I am trying to help them reach these goals.

As a special education teacher, most of my students are below grade level and are working hard to catch up to their peers.

Our Title I school has more than eighty percent of our population receiving free or reduced-price lunch. More than half of our students are English language learners. It's important to give these students a quality education early, to instill a love of learning while they are still young.

School should be a place where students feel safe and are able to gain skills and knowledge that will help them be successful in future careers. I strive to give them as many opportunities to learn these things as I can.

My Project

As a special education teacher, I help students who struggle with being in the classroom. We work really hard, but there are times when my students need a brain break and a time to just relax for a few minutes.

These items will help my students have that break which will help them stay more focused on class work.

Research has been shown that brain breaks really help students. In a study it says, ¨Short brain breaks during work time have been shown to have real benefits. They reduce stress, anxiety, and frustration. And they can help kids focus and be more productive. Brain breaks can also help kids learn to self-regulate and be more aware of when they're getting fed up or losing track of what they're doing.¨

These items will help my students tremendously especially during these uncertain times.
