I teach in a K-5 Resource/Behavioral Classroom. There are currently 40 students being served in our classroom. Each student has an individualized program focusing on academic and behavioral needs. Staff work to create an inviting classroom that stresses a strong sense of community where students learn to use safety, responsibility and respect. Many of the children are homeless or come from highly mobile families, so it is imperative that we make the most of our time with them. We are working to create an atmosphere of both support and challenge each day.
Engaged, determined, energetic; my students are eager to learn and be successful.
They love to practice their skills in a variety of modalities, playing games, using manipulatives and using repetition in order to learn to mastery. It is our goal to help each of them be prepared to enter the world ready to take on any challenge.
My students are some of the "Greatest Kids on Planet Earth". We do not have a budget for printing for Special Education, where students need the most opportunities for a variety of materials in order to ensure they learn mastery. This printer, ink and lamination will help us to create materials at each students' level and specific to their individual needs.
Daily lessons, games, manipulatives and other materials will be made available for students to use and practice when needed.
When students are homeless and come from diverse and migrant backgrounds, they often come to us with little more than the shirts on their backs. This printer, and the additional supplies, will allow us to create materials they can use in the classroom, as well as to take home and use with their families.
