My Students

My wonderful students come from a variety of diverse cultures and backgrounds. I love that they are enthusiastic to learn even though it may be difficult for them at times. Seeing the small success as they reach their goals make my day.

Our strategy in the classroom is to focus on what the students can do versus what others say they can't do.

Every student has talents and abilities and I help strengthen their confidence and love of learning despite their challenges. Meeting in small groups throughout the day helps students access their language arts and math curriculum in a way that they understand.

I try to make learning fun and engaging for all of my students and help them to realize that they can be successful in so many different ways!

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students' learning because it will allow them access to books they can actually read. Many of our students with special needs have a low reading level, so Elephant and Piggie books are perfect for them. To further engage students in writing, we use Expo markers frequently, which is why we are always running low!

We want all of our students to be successful, and success starts with a pencil!

We are always in need of pencils, which means we are always in the business of sharpening them.

Students with and without special needs need constant repetition and math games and manipulatives are a great way to accomplish that. Base Ten blocks and fraction tiles will encourage students to always practice and continue to be a successful learner.
