My students are amazing! I am a special education teacher and I work with students in kindergarten through 3rd grade with learning differences, physical disabilities, and behavioral difficulties. My students are confident, energetic, and excited to learn! They come to school each day, not focused on their struggles, but determined to do their best and learn new things!
I am blessed to work in a school where all students are included, accepted, and celebrated for who they are, regardless of their differences.
It is my job to help students find their learning styles and teach them in the ways they learn best, while instilling in them self-confidence and high self-esteem.
My job, as a special education teacher, is to not only to teach academics, but also to help students learn skills needed to be successful in life. Many students with special needs become dependent on teachers and aids. With the C-Pen and Book reader pens, struggling readers will be able to read text in class independently. This will make them more confident and more independent in their learning.
Independence increases self-confidence and increased self-confidence increases students' excitement and success in learning!
Students need to learn time regulation and goal-setting. The visual timers allow them to regulate their work independently.
Finally, many students struggle with hyperactvity, distractability, and sensory regulation problems. These all disrupt learning. Through the use of multisensory teaching, the students become more regulated and are then more ready to learn. All of these techniques together will allow my students to be successful, independent learners!
