My Students

I am a special education teacher grades k-5, and my students have a wide range of (dis)abilities and needs that affect their ability to access their general education and special education classroom and curriculum.

Our school is just starting its second year as a new school.

Our general student population is continuing to grow at a rapid rate and expect this to continue. In the special education department we have a consistent influx of students who benefit from multi-modal learning opportunities.

I am the only special education teacher in the building and have three educational paraprofessionals that assist with small-group support in targeted academic areas; reading, writing and math. We provide services both in the general education classroom and special education classroom depending on the student's needs.

My Project

In my classroom I use a multi-modal approach to skill acquisition in targeted areas (reading, writing, and math) to engage my students in learning and this includes incorporating technology. I teach special education classes for reading, writing, mathematics, and social skills to students in grades K-5. I have found that technology is a great way for students with special needs to engage in repeated practice for concepts that they would not normally have an opportunity to develop given instruction in a large group setting. Using a tablet or iPad allows for individualized repeated practice of previously taught skills with pacing that fits the individual student.
