My Students

My students are considered special needs. They are low in the areas of reading, writing, and math. In middle school, I teach a modified curriculum to them. Once they get to high school, they will be working towards a certificate of completion. The school I teach at is in a low-income area. It is a very small town and there are not a lot of resources available for the students. Some students come from blended families and they have struggled with fitting in with other students their same age. With the pressure of dealing with their home life and middle school, it can be challenging. I treat my classroom as a little getaway from the issues they may encounter.

Everybody in my class works hard.

With the struggles they overcome, all my students put forth their best effort in order to be successful. Yes, we may not see eye to eye on some things, but we are a family and we get through everything together.

The students work together, which practices great team building skills! They overcome obstacles when they approach them. By hard work, staying focused...they are superheroes in the making.

My Project

Technology is an important piece in my classroom. We use Chromebooks almost every day! The students go on the computers for various computer programs. There are programs that involve math, reading, and writing skills. We utilize the computers at least three to four hours daily. However, we do not have enough computers for the entire classroom to use. Often, kids need to share therefore students cannot learn through the programs while the other kids are on the computer.

The computers would be a GREAT asset to our classroom!

This would allow every student to have a computer. Nobody would be sitting out and not learning. We will not have to take turns sharing computers.

The books would be for our silent reading time. The kids love books that are easy for them to read and have a lot of pictures.
