My Students

My students are lovable children, and they love to learn! They learn best with music and visual aids. Most of my students were born with brain injuries, which makes learning a challenge for them. These wonderful children learn through games and repetition of concepts. Most of our students do not live in the neighborhood and come from various parts of the city. Our school culture is warm and inviting we have amazing administrators and outstanding teachers. The students that attend are very helpful with my students and treat them with respect.

My Project

My students are unique, and have special talents! I love their expressions on their faces as they learn new concepts. With teaching my students comes many challenges. One of the challenges is the students' cognitive abilities.

These Power Pens for Reading and Math Kits will allow students to receive additional support in those struggling areas.

Students will be able to use the pens individually, the students will use these pens during small group instruction. This will give them more practice in their weak areas, as I work with groups on rotations. These pens will promote self-help skills, and build confidence.
