My Students

I service 40 students as a special education teacher. During instruction I pull students from class to provide additional instruction in ELA and Math. I service students from kindergarten to sixth grade. All of my student have an individual education plan. I differentiate the curriculum daily based on their strengths , needs and goals.

My students are eager highly motivated students who want to learn.

My students come from low income families. Many of which live in shelters and come foster family. As well as meeting their academic need , I provide students will social emotional support.

My Project

Education is the first step to overcoming poverty. However, back-to-school shopping can put a major strain on many of my students' family finances. The stress of feeling left out and different can lead to lack of focus. Being prepared keeps children motivated and excited. When children have their own school supplies, they can improve grades, creativity, attitudes towards learning, behavior, peer relationships and self-image. A single pack of pencils and paper could be the gateway to a bright promising career. It is crucial to make sure the leaders of the future are prepared today in schools!
