My Students

My Resource Room students have a variety of disabilities from autism to specific learning disabilities. Most of my students are reading significantly below grade level. They receive support in literacy, writing, or math, or some combination of those subjects. They need lots of support and benefit from lots of visual and interactive instruction.

My students are from a very low-income city and many of them are English Language Learners, as well as, requiring Special education.

Many students lack fundamental skills in phonics, math and writing. I hope to foster a love of learning, and not just teach them facts and dates!

My Project

Our classroom projector just stopped working. It gave us two amazing years of visual support in our learning, but it seems it is time for a new projector.

The students are heartbroken that the projector is broken, because we use our projector all day, every day!

We use it to project GONoodle videos, which are great movement breaks. We use it to project storybooks for group reading and to project math lessons, so I can model for the group what to do, as well as projecting student work for all to see. In addition, I have a student with a visual impairment and she really relies on the magnified images.
