My Students

I teach special education to students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The district is considered high risk with over half of the students receiving a free or reduced lunch due to their income. Most of my students come from a single parent household. Some are being raised by grandparents, and I have had some in foster care. I have had several students who have been homeless over the 11 years I have spent in this district. Despite the differences these kids face, they come to school every day ready to learn.

Learning has not always been easy for these kids, and they do not always get the tools they need to be successful in the classroom.

Despite many obstacles, we do whatever we can, in the school setting, to make these students feel the success of their peers. When students work twice as hard to reach an outcome, the victory is doubly sweet!

My Project

My students are able to have materials read to them, which means any standardized math assessment can be read aloud on the Chromebook. Why is this a big deal? So I no longer have to read the assessments one by one to each of my special education students. General ed classrooms have headphones available, but most are shorted out and they fall of the students heads. Students are allowed to bring their own headphones, but sadly, none of my students have their own. This will give them the opportunity to come into my room and use headphones that are available all day, every day. Assessments in small group, means that each student will have headphones available to him/her when they are in my room taking tests.
