Ms. Baez from Hoboken NJ is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Inclusion Model Professional Development Library

I need to build my knowledge on special education inclusion models and best practices based on the most recent research. These books will support myself and my special education co-workers.

My Students

My students come from the economically and culturally diverse small city of Hoboken. They are the highest academic need students in middle school and receive resource room services as a result of their IEPs. They are highly motivated and are eager to feel comfortable in a school setting. Many of them have learning disabilities or attention disorders that make learning core subjects in a general education classroom more difficult. As a result, they receive either push-in (I help them in their classroom) or pull-out (they receive 1:1 or small group help in another room).

Despite any documented difficulties these students may have, their motivation and optimism for the learning process drive all the teachers they encounter to be the absolute best support to their learning.

They inspire me to seek out the best supports for them, across all fields of research.

My Project

In order to effectively implement a co-teaching model that supports teachers and students, it's important that I am up to date with best practices. Now is the best time to prepare for the upcoming school year so I feel supported and well informed. Additionally, I will be able to create a school library of these texts so other teachers who feel like they need more support will be able to use them as reference.

Learning does not end after college.

In order to continue to provide the best support for my special needs students, I will use these texts to frame out my year and organize the supports I will be providing my students along with teachers I work with. This will make it easy to turn-key professional development sessions, or start a grade level book club to exchange thoughts and ideas based on these books.
