My Students

My students have more potential than they'll ever realize! I currently teach a class with varying ranges of intellectual abilities—specific learning disabilities, autism, and speech and language impairments.

One of the biggest challenges in my classroom is managing the varied levels of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) of my students.

The reality in my classroom is that I need to find ways to work with all the diverse needs I'm faced with. I believe that even with some students coming from a low income background or those who lack parental support, they all deserve the chance to meet their highest potential. It's a challenge I'm ready for!

My Project

The binder organizer will help my students keep the information they need for each class in one safe location. I previously provided the students with a color-coded folder and tablet for each subject area. Over the years, I have learned that they became overwhelmed with too many folders and tablets to keep track of.

This eight-folder organizer will be perfect for the binders I provide.

Everything they need in one location... just like one-stop shopping! Because organization is difficult for most of my students, my goal is to keep them organized and on the top of their game both in and out of my classroom!
