My Students

I have always wanted to be a teacher! When I was in college observing classrooms, I saw two students fighting in a middle school class. That's the moment I knew I wanted to be a special education teacher.

The students in my high school English class are all special in different ways!

They all require special accommodations for learning. They are either Learning Disabled, Emotionally Disturbed, and/or Developmentally Delayed. They want to learn and be employed, yet struggle to keep up with industrial credentials needed for employment.

My students require lessons to be taught at a slower pace, with extra care and a lot of one-on-one attention. My students respond to personal attention and the loving environment I try to provide them in my classroom.

My Project

The books I am requesting - In the Woods, Ink Me, Spiral, No Easy Race - are high interest, low vocabulary for my students and will encourage independent reading. These types of books also encourage students to follow along with the reading as I read aloud to them. I also often read aloud to my students, as the required academic standards (required novels) are often beyond the reading abilities of my students.

As high school students, they are often hesitant at first to have a book read to them.

However, as I begin reading aloud, the joy in their faces as they become involved in the story line demonstrates the positive effect reading has. My students enjoy choosing books for me to read. They enjoy social topics, such as dating and high school sports. They especially enjoy mysteries. The students like to predict what is going to happen, or create their own ending to mystery stories.
