My Students

I would describe the kids I teach as inquisitive, caring, and balls of energy. I teach special needs students in grade 4. Being part of a team of five teachers, we are on the front lines of teaching these sponges for knowledge. Utilizing research-based and hands-on strategies, auditory and visual learning techniques really match each child's unique learning style.

Each of my kids is unique in their own way.

While one kid may learn with a hands-on approach, another may just need to hear it. Many of my children have dyslexia where they reverse numbers or letters. But I also teach children who have ADHD, Autism, speech and language delays, developmental delays, and other health impairments. So to reach each and every one of their special personalities, I use centers in my classroom. We also use many positive reinforcers at school such as a point system where they can buy things like teacher's chair, small snacks, or raffle tickets. They also get rewarded monthly if they reach their behavior goals. Our school is a fun and interactive environment where learning and strengthening our minds is the goal.

My Project

One lesson can change the life of a child. If you think back on your school career, one will always remember that one teacher that got through to them. Or that one lesson that was so interesting, it inspired. I want to be that teacher. I want to be the teacher that inspires my special need kiddos.

We would use our Cricut cutting machine for so many lessons and hands-on activities.

For example, my fourth graders learn geography of the United States regions. We would cut the states out on sticky paper and use them to learn locations and place them in their correct spot Another fun and innovating way to use the Cricut is when we are learning out multiplication facts. We can color code the facts and have a large manipulative sticky table on a wall. Learning then becomes interactive, kinesthetic, and fun.
