My Students

I am a Special Education teacher in a rural community. Our school is a Title I school, meaning funding is low. While funding is low, we try hard to keep student morale high.

As educators, we need to embrace the unique cultures, heritages, and diversities that are found within our student body.

Our students are from diverse, economic, cultural, and academic backgrounds, therefore, we need to explore our differences. The social, emotional, and academic needs of our students are my main focus. I service a wide range of disabilities across all elementary grade levels.

My Project

These books will serve as wonderful read-alouds as well as individualized reads for students at all levels. These books will be showcased and displayed throughout school so that students that are represented, demographically, in our classroom will have a sense of belonging. Students will also be able to participate in discussions and create quick-writes that will encourage them to dive deeper into the books’ central message enhancing their critical thinking skills.

Therefore, I would like to introduce these books to expose students to the concepts of individuality and diversity.

Having these books will add a variety of novels to our school library. Students have the opportunity to read and engage in meaningful conversations about how their books relate to the "big idea".
