My Students

I am a proud teacher of diverse learners in NYC's ASD NEST program. My students are special in so many ways---where do I begin?

My students light up when they are learning about a topic that they really connect with and even more so when a project impacts their lives.

Located in the diverse neighborhood of the East Village in NYC, my classroom is a true melting pot of cultures and abilities. Some of my students are advanced thinkers and self starters while others are learning to engage with schoolwork as well as their peers. Each student finds great joy and pride in learning new topics, but their methods and strategies can vary greatly.

As their teacher, my goal is to provide a learning environment where my students are engaged with inspiring projects and vibrant discussion.

My Project

My classroom library is a place that my students and I really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently!

A mantra in my room is "When in doubt, take a book out!" Our library is currently outdated and these new books will bring a new life to our read-aloud's as well as to students independent reading time.

With the addition of the microphone, students will be able to share their voice and opinion loud and clear!

The best way that I have found to to increase reading ability and engagement is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. These books will be a great step in the right direction.
