My students come to me every day with eager hearts ready to learn, and embrace the many opportunities offered at our school. Their excitement and zest for knowledge motivate me, and perpetuate my desire to better myself as a teacher. Coming from homes with limited resources, my students are grateful and amazed by every project, and opportunity they are given in school. As a teacher, I want to make every experience a joy for my students, and I want nothing more than to instill wonder, and curiosity in their ever growing minds.
They are thinkers, dreamers, and the future of our society.
I believe in their abilities and want their imaginations to be limitless. As a lower elementary special education teacher, I want my students to move on from my classroom with self confidence, caring hearts for all people, and a never-ending thirst for knowledge and learning.
Kindergarten, oh my! We will be having a handful of incoming kindergarteners next year in our special education resource classroom. They are already excited and geared up to transition to their new setting! I have wonderful activities prepared for them! We will be integrating art into the language arts and math curriculum. Learning is not as much fun without having pops of color throughout the day.
Pop, pop, pop!
The plentiful colored pencils, and markers will be utilized for creative math story problems, and vivid journal entries. I believe kids need a variety of opportunities to express their creativity. As the kindergarteners become more comfortable in their environment, I hope to create another project for paint exploration, and other avenues of art techniques, as well!
