My Students

My students come from the Dorchester neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts. Up to 5 students in each class have severe disabilities, while the remainder of the students will be a mix of students on IEPs and "general education" students. The students at our schools accept and appreciate all types of learners and individuals. We make inclusion a culture that is an example for the rest of the district.

Our student body is highly diverse.

Over 40% of our students have a disability. 77.1% of our students are considered to be high needs, with over half of them considered to be economically disadvantaged. Our students are resilient and optimistic about the future. Our students have big dreams and are supportive of each other in an environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential.

My Project

We have a tradition of celebrating a "student of the week" in each section of our classes. Students are presented an award that is signed by both teachers and laminated when students receive them. This tradition has helped us to get students excited about class, cheer on their peers, and live by our core values.

We are also in need of a brand new bookcase.

The bookcases that we currently have were of poor quality. They quickly deteriorated and are falling apart. We need new bookcases in order to display our class library books and to have a "reading corner" where students can practice their literacy skills.
