My Students

I serve a wonderful group of 7 boys who are on the Autism Spectrum in grades 3-5 at a Title 1 in Durham, North Carolina. I love that each child brings a unique perspective to the classroom. Their beautiful personalities create our dynamic learning space which inspire me everyday!

My amazing students motivate and encourage me to create innovative and creative lessons and activities that are differentiated to their individual learning need.

Each of my students has a beautiful personality that create our amazing classroom environment.

My Project

Help me give my students a learning experience that promotes 21st century learning. A classroom with new technology will help me create adaptable literacy materials, that will enable my students to become successful global learners and citizens of the world.

An enhanced classroom equipped with a document camera will allow my students to have access to the same reading material at the same time during whole group reading activities.

Presently, whenever there is whole group reading, the students are huddled closely together in our reading center with an instructor. Although sometimes engaged, having students grouped closely sometimes creates disruptions due to students’ individual sensory needs regarding space. Having an enlarged book will ensure that each student is able to view literacy materials with ease and comfort.

A color printer and laminating sheets will allow me to use current available resources such as Boardmaker Online or FileFolderHeaven.com to create adapted books and work tasks for students based on their strengths and individual IEP goals.
