My Students

My students are preschool aged children with various developmental delays including language delays and autism. Most are from low income families. They are wonderfully curious and resilient and many of them do well enough to eventually move out of self-contained special education. We are in a Title I school with over 50% poverty.

"Our task is to help children communicate with the world using all their potential, strengths, and languages, and to overcome any obstacles presented by our culture."

-Loris Malaguzzi

My Project

Early exposure to books is an essential part of literacy. By providing engaging children's books for my students, I hope to build an early love of reading and being read to.

"Books are a uniquely portable magic" - Stephen King

Since most of my students have both a disability and live in poverty, it is especially important to help them develop an early joy in reading. Reading builds vocabulary, imagination, language skills, and the ability to decipher the world around them. In an age of tablets, the ability to hold a book and turn the pages also builds fine motor skills. What a great way to encompass so many areas of development!
