My Students

I have the honor of teaching a small group of unique students. Our school is ranked as a high poverty school with 99% of our students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. I teach what is called a Self-Contained Cross Categorical Academic class of typically about 16-18 students, kindergarten and 1st grade. The disabilities in my classroom range in severity.

As you can imagine, trying to teach multiple grade levels at once can be challenging, but somehow with our organized chaos, my educational aide and I make it happen.

Each and every one of my students is making progress to meet their annual goals. Teaching at my school has been a blessing because I know that even on the hardest days, I have little ones who love the consistency and love they get at school. Not only do I teach my students academics, but I try to push them to do their absolute best and show them that even though they may have a disability, they can do anything if they set their minds to it.

My Project

My students are in need of new books for our classroom library. The books that we currently have, are no longer in good shape and falling apart or have been torn while they were learning how to handle books in the beginning of the school year over the past few years.

The books that I have chosen are high interest books with bright vivid colors in them.

These books are fall/autumn themed books which will work perfectly with our themes for the first quarter and a half of school. These books are sure to grab my students attention and hold their interest as they build stamina reading and looking at the pictures in books.

Thank you for considering my project.
