My Students

My classroom is full of the most wonderful and creative students. These students each possess a unique ability to win the heart of any teacher out there. The issue is that many times, teachers give up on this type of classroom too soon. My room is a self-contained instructional classroom for students with extreme behavioral and emotional needs.

These are the students that have been pushed out of the general education population due to unacceptable behaviors which are masking their cry for help, appearing uninterested in learning and seem too tough and unwilling to learn the expectations and lessons.

I have seen these kids master concepts and achieve goals they thought were impossible all because of the support they have in my room. Given the right tools, these kids are unstoppable and so amazing!

My Project

The materials in my project are all geared towards reinforcing good behaviors. Small items like fun pencils to larger items like earning time playing games with friends or using headphones to listen to music gives the students the chance to be recognized for their good behaviors. Our classroom currently does not have any functioning headphones, which is needed for independent listening opportunities for both academic and emotional needs. The treasure chest will not only provide rewards within it, but the excitement of an actual treasure chest coming out brings smiles every time!

These rewards provide opportunities for the students to find positive methods of self calming through writing, problem solving, or personal breaks in music and/or listening to audio stories.

Even the smallest recognition of my students, brings huge results!
