Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students attend a wonderful school in D.C. that always sets and holds high expectations for them. As a special education teacher, I am typically working to have students make more than a year's worth of growth each school year.

My students are multiple years below grade level in reading and math, and they are in need of intensive small group instruction.

This requires me to have a lot of different materials on hand every day. I need to provide my students with basic materials, along with books and math manipulatives so that they can feel cared for and have what they need to be successful in school.

My Project

Being pulled out of class can be triggering for some students with special needs, but it may also be necessary for them to make the most growth. That is why I find that having an incentive system and items to help students manage their stress during lessons is so beneficial. These items not only help the students, but they like them too! That way I can use them during class time and also as incentives for them to work their hardest during our class periods. As you could imagine, funding these things can get rather expensive, and it would be really helpful if we could have some support with this project.
