My Students

My students are elementary life skills special education students. I am a first year teacher who sadly hasn't had the chance to meet my students. But what I can tell you is that they are smart, funny, able, and have a desire to learn.

My Project

These materials will be used to enhance the students learning by making the learning engaging with technology through things such as Osmo. I also want to have books that are diverse to represent the population of my classroom and the school. I want them to read book with hero's who look like them. As well as read books with social stories that help them learn more about how the world works around them. I am so excited to have my very own classroom and see all of the things these students can teach me.
