My Students

Our school is a part of an urban school system that receives federal funding for programs that provide free meals for every student and Title I services to economically-disadvantaged boys and girls.

I teach exceptional education in an inclusion setting at a model elementary school.

Our school curriculum incorporates reading, mathematics, history, science, performing arts, coding, computer science, and STEM and STEAM. We are a school which includes military families, ESL/ELL students, and inclusion/special education students. My students love to learn yet many of them are below grade level and challenged to keep up with their peers and need instruction that fits their developmental needs.

My Project

We love a good challenge! Each day brings new ones for my students - in and outside of the classroom. But I have a bunch of determined, young people that have a will to do better, they need a boost. In the past, we have used an online web-based program called Study Island. It has allowed my students with exceptional needs to meet the rigor of our curriculum to prepare for state assessments. This online program includes state-specific content in all Mathematics, Social Studies, and English-Language Arts areas that is customized based on the students' current ability level. We were able to use this resource as a key element in our blended learning format. I am requesting an online subscription to Study Island for my current students to continue to allow them to have personalized instruction at school and home.

Learning for everyone, everywhere means learning that works.

We all want our children to be successful and I know that providing Study Island will do that. All students will be engaged through a variety of instructional methods that fit their learning styles. Content can be projected to the whole class through study breaks that include comprehension skills like formulating questions and drawing conclusions. Students will receive online encouragement in the form of badges and feedback on the skills that have been mastered or that they continue to struggle with. Structured learning experiences can be achieved using tools such as text-to-speech, large-font printed worksheets, and ongoing progress monitoring. Bringing Study Island into our classroom will be a game-changer.
