Endearing, resilient, and fun-loving students spend their time in our classroom for more than 6 hours a day. Our classroom is a special education classroom where we work to learn (and teach) in different ways. Every moment is a learning opportunity for us.
We celebrate successes and help each other when we stumble.
Learning a new skill takes perseverance and patient. We work towards success and progress. My students make me proud each and every day. Their progress may not look like everyone else's but you better believe we celebrate every step!
Students come to class with very diverse backgrounds and abilities. School is hard for them and making it easier and a place that they want to be is my responsibility. All of my students have attention issues and keeping them focused on their activities plays a big part in their learning successes. If they have a hungry tummy or they are not comfortable, they find it hard to concentrate (just as many of us adults do).
Providing snacks and special seating will enable my students to focus their attention on the rigorous academics set in front of them.
Also, making learning opportunities fun is essential in my classroom to engage my students.
