My Students

I teach students in the moderate/severe special education population for the Imperial County. My students range from non-verbal to high functioning special education children. I have a student who has high vocabulary usage, however when it comes to simple pencil gripping he can not perform. I have two students who are extremely aggressive in social situations and can only be calmed down with technology inside the classroom. I have a girl who can read extremely well, but when it comes to math skills and social skills, she completely lacks. I have another student who is the nicest, well behaved child; unfortunately he struggles with speech which affects his confidence.

All my students are very lovable and willing to learn.

Even though they have their conditions, they are always willing to learn and try paying attention when we are working with them.

My Project

All my students are in the moderate/severe special education program and require me to differentiate extensively. I have to form 3 to 4 different groups in order to meet the needs of all my students. All these products are geared to be able to differentiate for all my students in order to get them to read. Being a new teacher, I have limited resources available to teach them with material that truly captivate them.

Give students with special needs an equal opportunity for success.

They require more attention and different methods to learn that catch their attention. Thank you for your helping me reach my goal.
