My Students

This is my fifth year teaching in a New York City public school. I am a special education teacher in a 3rd-4th grade self-contained bridge classroom.

I made it a priority as I started my career as a teacher that even though I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I know I can certainly control their POSITIVE experiences during the school day in a creative and positive way.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous. As a teacher in a Title I school, my students are faced with various situations both in and out of the classroom. Half of my students are being raised in a single parent household and receive free/reduced-price lunch based on their socioeconomic status. My school is comprised of a good percentage of students with IEP’s and students who are English Language Learners. Even though these things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us take for granted. Despite the many situations they face, from the minute my students walk in the door of my classroom, I center on their innocence, growth and positivity.

My Project

My students have worked really hard this year. They have grown tremendously since September and I am super proud of them. I want to be able to get them a little something for all their hard work this school year. It got me to thinking, my students love read alouds, especially when it’s a infamous Mo Willems book. They love listening to me read any Elephant and Piggie book. You’ll even see them act out the book with a friend.

I would love to see the look on my students faces when they each receive their own copy of an Elephant and Piggie book.
