My Students

As a special education teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many difficulties they face, I strive to keep things simple and provide my students with inventive and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are intelligent, creative, and vivacious.

They are always in motion and love positive attention. Many of my students are being raised in single-parent households and receive free or price reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Despite facing adversity, they walk into our classroom with smiles on their faces, ready to tackle the day!

My Project

Learning to read is difficult, especially when you have a disability. My students have made tremendous strides with their reading this year, but they have read all of the books in my classroom! My class is eager to continue in their reading adventures, but they have become satiated with their selection.

As a Special Education teacher, my classroom presents a wide range of reading abilities.

Having access to a leveled library would ensure every child in my classroom has the opportunity to read books at their personal level. A leveled library will foster independence and increase confidence within my students as they continue to build foundational reading skills.
