My Students

My students are in 2nd grade and all have a learning disability. My students are diverse in many ways, including ethnically and economically. My students are all unique in their own ways, and they make my job fun and enjoyable.

"If a child cannot learn in the way we teach, we should teach in the way the child can learn." -Dr. Lovaas.

This statement from Dr. Lovaas expresses my teaching philosophy. I aim to make my classroom a fun and positive learning environment for my students. I recognize that they all learn in different ways, and it is my job as an educator to help teach them in those different ways. I aim to help meet their educational and behavior needs.

My Project

A group of about 15 Special Education students in second to fourth grade have Physical Education approximately twice per week. We do the usual activities outdoors, such as kickball, handball, and dodgeball. However, we are interested in throwing in some fun activities every once in a while. Getting this parachute, bubble wand, and foam balls will allow for more options and variety for physical education activities.

These students all have behavioral needs as well and these activities will help provide a preferred activity to them at the end of the school day to reinforce their appropriate behaviors during the day.
