My Students

I work with a group of students in a small group setting, that offers each student the resources that they need to be successful in school in an alternative setting.

We offer our students differentiated instruction and social skill strategies to meet their unique learning needs, by providing a flexible learning environment which allows our students the opportunity to thrive socially, emotionally, and academically in a safe and inviting atmosphere that encourages meaningful learning experiences.

Our goal is to help our students become positive, productive citizens and lifelong learners.

My Project

I work with students in a small group setting, that offers each student the support system that they need to be successful in an alternative school setting.

The supplies that I am requesting include bean bags, a teaching easel, paper, folders, pencils, and markers.

Students will be able to flex and learn using alternative seating. Sometimes a cozy corner with a bean bag can be the perfect solution for a student to be successful. A learning easel, folders, and writing supplies will allow me to teach flexible reading groups as students rotate through reading centers!
