My Students

The students I work with are from a rural mill town where business has not been booming lately. Poverty levels are high and aspirations are low. The students in my classes have emotional, intellectual, and learning disabilities, which prevent them from being successful in many regular high school classes. As a newer teacher, my supplies are limited and I have to find creative ways to motivate my students. Once they come to school I need to not only teach them but make them want to come back the next day. This happens through support, honesty, and trust. Any help would be much appreciated!

My Project

My students range from reading level elementary to high school. Their ages are anywhere from 14-19, boys and girls. Some are there because they struggle with reading and writing, some are there because the mainstream classroom is just too much for them.

Resource books like the ones I am requesting will help me to better reach all of the students individual needs.

Without individualized instruction, these students will exit high school not able to read a newspaper and understand what they are reading. These kids deserve to have materials in their classroom that will help to make them better and help them be successful in the "real world."
