My Students

I have been a Special Education teacher in a diverse and urban school community for five years. I just started my fifth year as a resource specialist teacher. What makes my classroom special is that my students are always provided with equal learning opportunities and I never allow my students to give up on themselves. I always push my students to do well and encourage them to keep trying their best no matter how many tries it takes them. My students are absolutely dedicated and passionate about learning in the special education setting.

I want to teach my students to change their mindsets from "I can't" to "I can.”

Throughout the few years that I've been teaching, I have met all sorts of students who have all helped me grow to become the teacher that I am today and I thank them every day for that. I have learned that different students learn in different ways and my students learn to adapt their learning styles so that they can continue learning new things. Then they can have the most valuable and versatile learning experience in my classroom.

My Project

Our school serves over 200 hundred students ranging from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Over 90% of the students qualifying for free lunch and breakfast. Most students have parents who are working multiples jobs to make ends meet. Due to these circumstances, students often come to school and go throughout the day leaving dirty from recess and lunch playtime which in turn makes it very difficult for individual learning to emerge especially if they are getting sick from germs and dust in the classroom or from their peers. My students and I will to use the proper cleaning products to maintain cleanliness and teach students proper hygienic practices in my classroom.

I want to be able to provide my students with a safe and hygienic classroom and provide my students with food to keep them fed so that they don't have to work on a empty stomach and feel safe and warm at school.

I will have students practice good hygiene in the classroom as part of their daily routine since the classroom is like their second home. We need hygiene supplies such as toothbrush, toothpaste, and masks a part of making our classroom a clean, healthy, and welcoming place for my students. We will use the toothpaste and toothbrushes to reach hygienic habits to my students. I will use the snacks to make sure they have access to food whenever are they are hungry. The mask will be given to them so that if they need to, they will feel safe knowing they have access to mask to change incase their own mask becomes unusable. During a pandemic these are essential items for all students to keep them safe, fed, and healthy.
