My Students

"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”-Maya Angelo. This quote could not be truer for myself and my students. When I can create fun, interactive and engaging lessons that draw my students in and they learn, then we are all successful.

Many students only meal is when they eat at school.

Some students are homeless and/or do not have a stable home life. But despite all of these challenges, ALL of my students want to learn and be cared for. They come to school to feel safe and know that there are people that want to help in any way we can. For this reason, I vow to make my students feel safe and secure. I want them all to work as hard as I will for them. They see this, feel this, and recognize not everyone is perfect but we can all strive to be better. Kid President always asks, "What will you do to make the world more awesome?" My response it teach.

My Project

The students require intense intervention and literacy support. The students have a learning disability in general education classes. The use of portable CD players will support their literacy skills. The students will participate in an evidence based practice reading intervention program named Read Naturally. The students will access the reading by listening to the story being read to them. They will receive immediate modeling of fluent reading which is an important factor in student growth. Students will be working on the Common Core State Standards which makes designing individualized lessons more accessible for educators. The portable CD players is simply a tool that will help the students achieve their goals.

Students must learn and have access to technology in order to be successful in life.

Again, many of my students require financial support and cannot afford hi-tech devises. By attaining this donation of portable CD players, the students would not have to worry about not having technology at home. The use of technology decreases the cognitive demand and students are able to retain more. I know this donation will continue to help the student be successful.
