My Students

I work with students in second grade who are identified as having learning disabilities and social/emotional disabilities. My Special Education students struggle with reading, writing and mathematics; as well as with social and executive function skills. They spend their day in an integrated classroom with a Special Ed teacher (myself) and a General Ed teacher. The majority of them come from low income families, with some of them living in homeless shelters. We use many different hands-on materials to accommodate different learning styles; however, we are lacking a comfortable gathering spot for stories and morning meetings. Additionally, we have no flexible seating to provide optional learning spaces and quiet time. This will be our first year doing the coteaching model and we want our students to come in set up for success.

My Project

This coming school year I will be working in an integrated 2nd grade classroom with another teacher. Our classroom will be made up of almost 1/2 Special Ed. students. Currently, there is very limited furniture and supplies. All of the books, many of the materials, and the majority of shelving/storage have been purchased by myelf and the other teacher. We are hoping to have a nice carpet to hold our morning meeting and other group gatherings (read alouds, etc). Additionally, we have a vast amount of books that we have supplied and we hope for our classroom library to be a comfortable place for students to explore and develop their love of reading. The small carpet and seating will help make that space more inviting.
