My Students

I teach an integrated special education classroom with 50% of the students having various developmental disabilities. The other 50% of my students come from at-risk environments that qualify them for Head Start or other state funding to receive free high-quality preschool. My students are empathetic and inclusive of all their peers.

"Inclusion is not simply about physical proximity.

It is about intentionally planning for the success of all students." All of my students come from loving and caring families, however, societal and different family factors have created challenges for both them and their families. Among the already unique classroom demographics, there is a high percentage of my students that are learning English as a second language.

My Project

Do you remember dressing up in your moms' clothes when you were little? My classroom doesn't have any dress up opportunities for my students to expand their creativity and learning. I chose two separate sets of dramatic play clothes for the center. One set is the Lakeshore multicultural clothing set to honor and support other cultures in the classroom. The second set is the Lakeshore career costume set (police, mailperson, etc). My hope is that the students will run wild with their imagination and creativity with both sets of dress-up items by combining the costumes and creating new language and vocabulary through dramatic play.
