My Students

As a Special Education Teacher, both academically and demographically each and everyone of my students is different. They each bring to the table their unique strengths as well as their unique challenges. Additionally, COVID has presented my students and their families with a slew of new challenges that have had a large impact on them as they have missed out on key components of their education and I have noticed the impact that the last 2 years has had on their social and emotional development.

My Project

The use of colors in instructional materials has proven to play an important role in creating different emotional reactions and capturing learners' attention. It has also proven to aide in retention and comprehension of curriculum. Students with learning disabilities face many added struggles, with the use of colorful materials it will give them that much more support with their learning. If my project for a color printer is funded, I would be able to consistently provide my students with colored materials that will ultimately be the most supportive and give them additional tools to aide in their success.
