My Students

My students are so special to me because I am able to work with the same kids everyday and see them improve everyday. I am an inclusion/resource teacher so I will go into their classroom and work with them along side the teacher. I also pull the students out of class for short periods of day to work with them on anything they need. My students are so sweet and they love to learn! Each student is unique in their own way and I love getting to know them each and every day.

My Project

My school board holds professional development at least 3 times a week for the school I attend. Having different writing utensils can help implement the strategies taught during professional development. Using page protectors will help keep each page from the professional development clean and organized in a binder. The index cards will help me keep track of notes and keep any/all information organized in one location. The materials provided to me will help benefit my learning to become a better teacher personally and professionally. I can not tell you how grateful and appreciative I am for your help during this journey. These classroom supplies will also benefit my students. They will be able to use index cards for activities in my classroom. They also love to do rainbow write so they will love to have different color pens. The sheet protectors will be used as a tool for my students. I will be able to stick a worksheet inside a protector and the students will be able to use a dry erase marker to write on it.
