My Students

Working in a K-8 school allows you to get to know the students who remain in one place for more than a year. On the other hand, a transient population makes it difficult for students to feel comfortable and accepted.

Many students have greater difficulties at home which makes school their safe haven.

The full inclusion model allows for students with a range of disabilities to feel welcome and accepted. Even through all the difficulties these students have faced, they all want to succeed.

My Project

Working in special education, I have seen many students with visual-spatial difficulties which makes lining up math problems nearly impossible. Aligning these problems incorrectly causes many misconceptions from others. One of the most common misconceptions is that "the students don't know their math facts." However, when taking the time, as their teacher, to analyze their errors it is obvious that they simply did not align the problem correctly.

If I have learned one thing from teaching, it is that students want others to believe they are smart.

Implementing this simple accommodation through the use of grid notebook paper. for all students will hopefully increase their scores and confidence.
