My Students

I teach a special education class of kinder through fifth graders. My special education program is a blended push-in/pull-out program which means that some students come into my special education classroom and learn in small groups while other students receive their supports in the General Education classroom while working with their teacher and typically developing peers.

Our school is just blocks away from the site of the tragic shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.

Our school is in the most southern part of Silicon Valley with rural and agricultural lands surrounding our school's neighborhood. Our school also has a dual-immersion Spanish/English program which several of my students participate in. My classroom includes students of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

My Project

All students deserve access to books that engage them and books they can read. Right now, many of my students are reluctant readers and English learners that rely on the visual supports of a picture book but feel embarrassed reading something that looks childish. Enter the graphic novel.

Not only are these books highly visual, but they look mature and reflect characters and issues my diverse special education class can connect with.

The act of reading - of reading anything, creates better readers overall. I want my students to have access to cool, new, interesting books that they want to read in class. I encourage them to read for enjoyment - I give them time every day to read and they choose what they will read.

My special education students are with me up to 6 years so it is important that my library continually get more interesting and exciting books.
