My Students

This will be my first year working with an amazing group of 7th and 8th grade students at our local middle school as a special education resource room teacher. My students will be getting special help in a resource room setting because they may need extra help processing their reading and writing assignments. I will be providing a lot of visual scaffolds, reading and writing prompts, and individual assistance and support to ensure the success of each of my students.

This will be my first year with these students but I know a few from working at a local elementary school and I’m looking forward to reconnecting and continuing to motivate and inspire them in their learning.

We are a Title I school which means we have a higher percentage of students educationally at-risk.

Right now my room is empty, a blank slate, ready for the scaffolding support and care my students need to help them be successful.

My Project

It is so difficult trying to learn when everything around you is trying to get your attention and keeping you from focusing on the lesson.

I want to help my language arts resource room students be successful by providing them with flexible seating options such as a chair ball to help 'get the wiggles out'.

These seats allow movement without being distracting to students around them.

Also, headphones are needed by some students to cancel out any noise or distractions that are hindering their learning. Some students have a heightened sensitivity to sound and can focus and be involved when they can control the level of the audio!
