My Students

I am the K-2 Title One reading teacher in a low income southwest Missouri school district and work with approximately 30 students, either individually or in small groups.

I love working with the youngest struggling readers who usually still have the "love of learning".

Their potential for learning can only go up if I can help them see the relevance of how learning to read is a vital life-long skill.

I do a variety of reading assessments to help guide my instruction and also collaborate with the classroom teachers. I strive to use many multi-sensory strategies to address my students' many learning needs.

My Project

My students need to be able to move freely while they are working with me at my table. I currently have some 14-inch wobble chairs, but would like to get a 16-inch wobble chair to accommodate my taller students.

Children with learning challenges learn best when they can move while they work; increasing blood to the brain as they move will increase student learning.

We also need a long reach stapler to make leveled books for our guided reading groups. Using a long reach stapler makes the books easier to turn and helps so the books stay flat as they read them.
