My Students

My students have diverse backgrounds, as well as diverse needs. They are the most amazing kidos to work with, and inspire me to be a better teacher. I teach in an ESE-inclusion, math, classroom, at a school that would be considered Title I, which means 60% of our students are on free or reduced price lunch.

We cross language barriers, laugh, learn, create, and solve.

Students learn to be responsible for their own work and their actions. They learn to stick up for themselves by asking for things they need and to disagree with each other respectfully.

It's a full year and we aren't done yet!

My Project

Students come to my classroom with a myriad of different needs. There are a number of acronyms used to describe their needs and necessary accommodations. Some of these kiddos have given up on school because they don't fit into a regular classrooms and those classrooms don't work for them.

I strive to figure out what each student needs to succeed and provide them with opportunities to do so, and rebuild their confidence in the classroom.

These desks will provide students with a comfortable place to work while they learn, whether that be through collaboration or independent work, practice, and study.
