My Students

My school is in a socio-economically disadvantaged area in Reseda, California. Our school receives funding from Title I, which helps students who may not have as many resources available to them to help them succeed in school. Additionally, many families may have only 1 parent that works which makes daily living a constant challenge.

My students are general education students receiving special education services for learning difficulties, including Specific Learning Disabilities, Autism, and impairments that affect their ability to focus.

My students range from Kindergarten to fifth grade and most have been receiving services since they were young.

I am the resource teacher and provide support for my students in the area of reading, writing, math, and English language development. Most of the students who are now in fifth grade, I have seen since they were in Kindergarten. These students have had academic challenges throughout, but I have seen the positive changes they have made in all areas.

My Project

Getting a projector in my classroom will ensure increased engagement during reading and math lessons. A projector is needed in order to capture my students' attention when introducing new material.

My students need visual support in the area of vocabulary.

With the majority of English language learners, I need to ensure that they understand unfamiliar vocabulary and can show them images to make the definitions more concrete. A projector will allow me to project examples of the vocabulary we are reading.

They are always much more engaged when they learn a new word and can put a picture to it. I will surely see growth in their learning!
