My Students

As a special education teacher, I have the honor of teaching some of the most exceptional students out there. I teach 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learning support, ELA, to some of the best kiddos I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. These students work harder than any I’ve seen, even through their struggles. They maintain a positive attitude and continue to dust themselves off and try again time after time. They deserve the world, and I do my very best to give it to them.

My Project

Flexible seating arrangements provide students with ADHD options that keep them moving without distracting anyone from learning. Pocket charts are a great way to display vocabulary words, especially with four groups of students all on different levels with different words. A pocket chart makes it easy to switch words as new groups come throughout the school day. Listening centers are a great way to switch things up. Students can listen and follow along to a story. The headphone splitter allows me to have several students listen to the same CD player at one time. Hall passes take the guess work out of where students are. They also allow to students to see if another student is already out of the classroom.
