My Students

I am a special education teacher in a 3rd grade integrated co-teach class, and share teaching with an amazing general education teacher. Our ICT class consists of special education and general education students learning and working cooperatively.

Each student is unique and special in his and her own way, and we look forward to each school day!

Our students’ smiles and eagerness to learn are a daily reward for us.

Our school consists of culturally and linguistically diverse students within a low socioeconomic community. Our special education students have been diagnosed with various exceptionalities which include learning difficulties, speech impairments, ADHD, autism, and sensory issues.

My Project

Writing and reading are important facets of third grade and part of our daily routine. Our students range in comprehension ability and each one learns in a different way. As a special education teacher, it is my responsibility to give our students the opportunity to do so!

Can you imagine the joy a child would feel experiencing that “A HA!” moment when they finally master a skill?

Students need practice in order to master skills such as making inferences, comparing and contrasting, identifying the main idea, finding the point of view, identifying the author’s purpose, recognizing character traits and text features, and finding key details.

Our students enjoy breaking up into small reading groups where they work together and support each other. Wouldn’t it be great if our students could learn these skills while having fun and not even realizing that they are learning?

It’s a daily struggle to differentiate in order to meet the needs of each student since each one has a different strength and a different weakness. Having these reusable comprehension kits and dry erase markers would be such an asset to our students and would ensure that we meet each and every one of their literacy needs.
