My Students

As a Resource Teacher, I work with students who are eligible to receive special education services in grades K-4.

My students have been identified with various learning and physical disabilities.

These students, most of whom are English Language Learners, receive extra support in academic areas such as math, reading and writing. They also receive additional support in non-academic areas, such as social-emotional learning and organizational skills. A total of 20% of our school's population receive Special Education services.

My students spend most of their day in their general education classes; however, they need a space and time to work in small groups in order to meet their identified IEP goals. It is my mission to create a warm, welcoming space for students to master these academic and non-academic concepts, while fostering Independence and self-advocacy.

My Project

The Special Education team at our school is banding together to revamp our Resource Room. Our goal is create a warm, welcoming space for our student to receive Specialized Academic Instruction. Currently, the Special Education staff are spread out in various offices around the school; by localizing Special Education in the Resource Room, we can really create a cohesive, comfortable space where students from kindergarten to the 4th grade can work on their identified IEP goals.

Our goal is for our Special Education students, who make up 20% of our school's population, to receive small group instruction in a warm, welcoming environment.

We aim to identify all areas of our students' need: reading, writing, mathematics, social-emotional, and executive functioning skills.

Our students not only have special needs, but the majority of them are English Language Learners, and come from low-income families. The experience of receiving small group instruction from our team of caring Special Educators will give our students the boost they need to thrive, both in an academic setting and in their personal lives.

Your donation will go toward buying the tools we need to deliver high quality small group instruction to our students. The Carpet of the Nation rug will serve as a place for students to receive Specific Academic Instruction. The Highback Bean Bag Chair and the Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seat will serve as sensory seating for our students.
