My Students

I am a bilingual special education teacher who serves a South Bronx elementary school. It is one of the poorest in the nation. Our students are mostly immigrants from South and Central America, who are in need of more than pencil and paper to understand the world around them. They share the drive to learn about the world through videos, pictures and even YouTube videos. The need for supplies is great since our resources are often very limited. Education is often the only escape. It gives them the hope that one day they will be able to experience the world. Our students are in a self-contained Cognitive Impairment classroom.

My Project

My students need need independent access to materials at a level that they can learn and understand. My classroom serves students with disabilities. I work with grades K-2 and teach Reading, Language Arts and Math in the special education setting. My students have disabilities such as Speech impairment, Autism, Intellectual disabilities, and Learning disability, among others. Alongside their disabilities, most are English Language Learners. We are situated in one of the most poorest districts in the United States. Our classroom is specially designed with instruction that is targeted to meet the needs of each individual student.

An Elmo projector with accesories will enable us to access books, worksheets, and other resources so we can meet each of our student's needs.

Many times we are left without workbooks and with incomplete books. Often we are forced to make copies or scrounge around for supplies. The Elmo projector will enable us to make use of one copy of a book or workbook and the internet. It would be so greatly appreciated!
