My Students

Hello! I am a Special Education teacher at a middle school! I work with all different types of students and help them become successful in their general education classes. The students I work with are always looking for new ways to learn about themselves and how they can be advocates for themselves in this world!

My students are BRAVE individuals!

Each of the students I work with has a disability and always try their hardest. I work to help give them as many "tools" as possible to be the best learner they can be!

My Project

Our students are always using different materials in the classroom to help them be successful. I love giving them opportunities to not just work with pencil and paper, but with dry erase markers and using the slips to write on is a lot more fun!

The students that I work with engage when they are able to use the learning style that works best for them.

They enjoy using new materials that help them focus better and that are more fun to work with!

My classroom would benefit from these new materials to call their own!! They respect the new materials and always want to try something else!
