My Students

The students that I am lucky to work with every day are truly amazing. They are special needs students that put an incredible amount of effort in to their daily routines. I believe that by giving providing my students with the tools they need to receive explicit instruction, they will reach their goals.

Please consider funding this project as you can change the lives of my students.

Not only will you be providing my students with their own equipment to be utilized during small group instruction, but more importantly they will be able to receive and create explicit instruction which is crucial to them.

My Project

Explicit instruction provides students with purposeful instruction from an educator. We can agree that all children learn differently, that's why the way they are taught should be different as well. The tools of wipe off boards, dry erase markers, highlighters and post it notes will enable both myself and my students to pinpoint where the learning and success begin.

My students success will be guaranteed via explicit instruction.

Please consider funding this project as you can change the lives of my students. Not only will you be providing my students with their own equipment to be utilized during small group instruction, but more importantly they will be able to receive and create explicit instruction which is crucial to them.
