Mrs. Avitable from Saint Johns FL is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Growth Mindset: Learning New Ways to Help Students with Disabilities

I need professional development in order to serve the growing population of students with disabilities. I would like to learn new strategies and interventions that I can use when working with my students.

My Students

Every day, I get to come to work and spend my time with students with disabilities in grades k-3. My students spend about 80% of their school week in general education classrooms. While they are in their classrooms, I provide them with academic, social, and emotional support. Additionally, I work with them outside of their classrooms and we try to bridge the gap, increase confidence, and increase their level of success.

All of my students have beautiful minds and I want to learn more about how they work!

We work on math, reading, and social skills and they are such hard workers! They love to earn rewards and enjoy using sensory items like stress balls when they are in my classroom.

My Project

Currently, I work with 46 students with disabilities. They are in grades k-3 and have a variety of needs. Although I have been an ESE teacher for 4 years, I am always trying new methods of teaching in order to help my students be successful.

This conference will provide me with new ways to improve student achievement for students with disabilities and to help them stay engaged in their learning!

Additionally, I will be able to disperse information to our teachers and help them implement new strategies in their classrooms. This will help general education teachers who may be working with ESE students in an inclusion setting for the first time.
