I teach in 4th Grade Gifted, Regular Education, and Special Education students at Title One School in Savannah, GA. Teaching gifted and inclusion has been an amazing journey by having the opportunity to teach both gifted, regular education, and special education students in the same learning environment. I have a very diverse classroom. We are diverse in our cultures and in our learning.
My students face many adversities in the world, but in our classroom everyone is loved and given opportunities to learn and grow.
Each child has learning abilities regardless of their disabilities. My children show me each day why I am fortunate to be their teacher and that there is still love in this world. Every child can flourish and shine if given a safe learning community that provides a meaningful education.
Getting children excited about reading has never been easy, but iPads, video games, and TV have made it even more challenging! The two class sets of literature, Magyk and How to Train Your Dragon, are exciting stories that engage young readers! My inclusion class has regular and special education students that struggle with reading. When they read a book that also has a movie they get to see how to transform text into the action of Hollywood! My gifted and regular education classroom needs challenging text, but age appropriate. Magyk is an exciting glimpse into a whole new world! The children enjoy reading the same story and having conversations with peers strengthens the depth of understanding the text and positively builds our classroom community.
