My Students

I am teaching a self- contained class with students of various disabilities. These includes students with ADHD, Autism, Emotional Behavioral Disorder and Learning Disability. Some of my students also live in shelters and others come from low-income families.

My students come to school each day ready to learn.

Despite of the fact that each of my student learn differently, they are passionate learners. They learn best through small groups and one-on-one. Each day they are provided with various activities that foster creativity and learning.

This year I would love to see my students soar high!

My Project

Music is a fundamental part of children's lives. In fact, music has become an important tool in special education as a method for neutralizing negative feelings and enhancing stress tolerance. Integration of music in the classroom help my students regulate their emotions and increase on-task behavior. I had one student last year who became more motivated to write while listening to music and another student who learned the alphabet while listening to the alphabet song in an iPad.

With the new cassette player with BLUETOOTH, listening center headphones, and circle-time CD my students will be able to enjoy listening to music, singing, and humming.

This project will not only enhance the classroom environment but will also aid in accommodating students with disabilities. Students will benefit with these materials on a regular basis. They will be able to select a music piece they will enjoy and what they are comfortable with. My students can learn words through singing songs. Since music is considered by many health experts as a therapy, my students who struggle with attention will be able to increase their attention and focusing. The cassette player is great because it comes with a BLUETOOTH that can be connected with phones. This will be much easier for me and the paraprofessionals assigned with my students to guide them to pick the song that they like. Additionally, the headphones will be very helpful because the kids can just plug their headphones to the cassette player. They will enjoy the music without any distractions or noise.
