My Students

I teach 4th and 5th grade students who are in a self contained special education program, in a low income area. My students learn through exploring and hands on and engaging activities. My students are excited to come to school and learn and I want to be able to provide resources to all types of struggling learners. All the students in my classroom, have different disabilities and need individual items to help them succeed in school.

My goal is for all my students to learn and grow in my classroom while providing hands on material and creative approaches to ensuring each individual child's needs are met.

My Project

These materials will help my students be more independent and work at their own pace. Flexible seating helps the students become more engaged and motivated in class. I want my students to be independent learners so being able to find a comfortable area in the classroom where they can be focused. Pencil cases, markers, laminating sheets, and journals will help me provide the basic necessities to help run my classroom. I want to be able to provide almost everything they need to be successful learners.

Please help my students reach their full potential as scholars!
