My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school district, my students are faced with challenges in their everyday lives. I have noticed that coming to school for some of my students has provided them a sense of belonging and they receive the attention they need.

My students are caring, thoughtful students that provide one another the encouragement and support we sometimes need.

My students enjoy seeing one another succeed. Their love for reading is heartwarming and their drive to learn makes my job that much more rewarding.

Based on some of my students socioeconomic status, it is hard for them to always have the resources they need to learn at their best ability. I sometimes wish there was more I could do for my students, but I only have so much control on how I can impact their lives. I am hoping to have an impact on my students, that will help my special education students succeed just as well as their general education peers.

My Project

Being able to produce assignments for my students in color will allow them to better understand the material. My students will be able to see the contrasts within the assignment. Sometimes when work is given in black and white it is difficult to analyze an image or chart.

Being able to provide my students with colored copies of material will better support them in Social Studies when analyzing historical images.

Please help me provide the best learning I can for my students. Working with special education students, color coding has greatly benefited their understanding of the material. When work is more appealing to the eye, more becomes retained.
