My Students

The students in my classroom are compassionate creative hands on learners that are full of questions. They absolutely love hands engaging, active activites that challenge them to think outside the box and find solutions. All the students in my classroom are Special Needs and learn better by using tactile resources that can be hands on for learning.

Our school is located on the East Side of Milwaukee in the Riverwest Community.

At Riverwest Elementary School, we will create a inclusive environment to educate all the students in our community while upholding the highest academic and social emotional standards and supports. This will be done in a culturally responsive manner, preparing all studnets for success above and beyond the classroom without remediation.

My Project

Each student in my classroom learns in many different ways; visual, audiotory, tactile, kinesthetic and social. For social learners, the time spent in small group conversation will strengthen their knowledge. The best learning for my students is active, when they are engaged in hands on classroom games and activities their senses heighten their brian and create pathways that make it easier and quicker to retain information. With interactive hands on activites the real-world experiences and knowledge that is taught can go a long way in real life experiences. If my project is funded my students would have been given opportunities that might change them for the future
