My students are in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, and all have a learning disability. My students are diverse in many ways, including ethnically and economically. My students are all unique in their own ways, and they make my job fun and enjoyable.
"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we should teach in the way the child can learn." -Dr. Lovaas.
This statement from Dr. Lovaas expresses my teaching philosophy. I aim to make my classroom a fun and positive learning environment for my students. I recognize that they all learn in different ways, and it is my job as an educator to help teach them in those different ways. I aim to help meet their educational and behavioral needs.
I teach Special Education and I have approximately 8 students in my classroom. We are in need of a bookshelf to help store and keep student assignments organized until they get sent home. This bookshelf/mailbox sorter would help tremendously with this. In addition, we do Art in my classroom on a weekly basis so the shelves which would not be in use for student work would be used as storage for art supplies, such as construction paper and card stock. I strongly believe in keeping my classroom organized because it helps model those important skills for my students.
