My Students

I have been a special education teacher in a diverse and urban school community for five years. I just started my fourth year as a resource specialist teacher. What makes my classroom special is that my students are always provided with equal learning opportunities and I never allow my students to give up on themselves. I always push my students to do well and encourage them to keep trying their best no matter how many tries it takes them. My students are absolutely dedicated and passionate about learning in the special education setting.

I want to teach my students to change their mindsets from "I can't" to "I can.”

Throughout the few years that I've been teaching, I have met all sorts of students who have all helped me grow to become the teacher that I am today and I thank them every day for that. I have learned that different students learn in different ways and my students learn to adapt their learning styles so that they can continue learning new things. Then they can have the most valuable and versatile learning experience in my classroom.

My Project

With distance learning, it makes it diffcult to give our students hands on learning because we are separated by a screen. Unfortunately, my students are struggling because my visual learners don't have as many hands on material to manipulate and use to visualize problem solving. Hands on learning gives students the opportunity to self-correct any educational missteps in the moment due to some lack of inclusion from general education. My RSP special students' learning can get buried and hindered due to lack of zoom time, poor internet connection, or a poorly-written textbook, and lack of live examples of core concepts. This causes my students to have learning gaps during distance learning due to having racial inequity pitted against them where studies claim that students of color are categorized as the highest number of students that deal with educational hardships.

My students simply learn better when they’re allowed to roll up their sleeves and experience the subject matter in a simulation, rather than being distanced from it by a third-hand narrative experience or a dry passage of text.

Having the cricut materials like vinyl and sticker paper, I can use the machine to cut out manipulatives easily and efficiently so that I can make baggies of visual learning materials for my students and provide inclusive learning to support their general education learning. I can use the sticker paper, cricut tools, and vinyls to create materials about inclusion and racial equity. They can use the manipulatives across many learning subjects like teaching about inclusion, equity, and other academic topics such as identify order of events in a story, sequencing scientific methods, and more. Hands-on learning also provides my students with the opportunity to safely make mistakes and learn organically through trial and error.
