My Students

My students are at risk children that benefit from a small, structured, nurturing environment. They thrive through direct, multi-sensory activities that allow them to experience challenges and successes. They are energetic, curious and dynamic!

These students are all working hard on meeting their individual goals and becoming lifelong learners.

Their enthusiasm is contagious and inspiring.

Every day I learn so much from my students and I am excited to see them continue to make progress and grow. Thank you for reading about our project.

My Project

Throughout the day my students will be working in small guided lessons for math and reading. While one group is working with me, the other students will be focusing on individualized skills with the support of classroom staff. These hands-on products will keep them engaged while learning and foster independence.

The phonics kits will allow the students additional practice and get them on the road to becoming life long learners and readers.

The math sets will help support guided lessons and give them resources while working independently.

I am excited to see them grow and I thank you for being a part of their success.
