My Students

"Every child deserves a champion - An adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insist that they become the best that they can possibly be," Rita Pierson. As a teacher it is our job to connect with our students. We need to fulfill their educational needs. I am currently a Special Education teacher in a low-income school. Many of my students do not have resources at home to help in their education. My students come to school eager to learn.

My goal for my students is for them to learn in a safe and loving environment.

Kindergarten and First Grade are crucial years in inspiring a love for learning. Students learn best in a comfortable learning environment. My students are hands on learners. They use manipulatives to reinforce the lessons taught. They learn through repetitive play and modeling.

My Project

My students are energetic learners who need to be engaged during all lessons. I am requesting some new hands on manipulatives to help them make real life connections to our word building and math lessons.

Today's students are tomorrows future, and they need to learn and make connections to their life outside of school so they can be successful.

The math manipulatives will help them learn what money is, that it has value. The letter tiles will help us learn to read and spell new words with a hands on approach. The playdough helps bring new texture to our learning and for many will help them make a larger connection to their learning. The case will help keep our letters together. The STEM bins allow us to think outside the box, exploring different ways of thinking. Together these items will keep my young learners engaged in new and innovate types of learning.
