My Students

My students are hard working, eager learners who love to explore new opportunities and chances to learn. They are fantastic writers and excited readers and math whizzes and I want to do everything I can as their teacher to help them grow in that creativity. This is my first year teaching Special Education and I need resources to facilitate small group instruction and hands on learning.

My students are brilliant, creative, and eager to learn!

Most of my students are first generation Texans who have parents that have recently migrated to Central Texas. Most of them come from the lowest socioeconomic group and lack the home support and background skills that they need to enter school with. A lot of their parents are native Spanish speakers, and most have had limited exposure to academic Spanish or conversational English. It doesn't stop them from being great and from having the potential to achieve great things. They work hard despite the work being harder than it is for their peers.

Our classroom has a culture of positivity, support, and hard work! We're a part of a wonderful Title I school that's working to prepare them for a bright and successful future!

My Project

Because my students receive small group instruction, they need more intensive resources to be successful in a resource room environment. The rugs and letters will add to a warm and welcoming environment, making every child feel welcome and ready to learn.

Flexible seating such as exercise balls and donuts allows students to focus on learning without being forced to sit still in a traditional classroom setting.

Personal timers will help students focus on time management, and classroom supplies such as markers, glue sticks and erasers will support year-long learning in small groups! A rolling stool will allow me to use both of my horseshoe tables to their fullest, getting close to students to help them one-on-one as they master new learning!
