My Students

My students are a mix of diverse learners and general education students. As a school, we're trying to include as many students as possible in the general education environment while still providing instruction in a smaller settings. To achieve that, teachers and students are collaborating across environments.

Building responsibility and confidence makes a huge difference for my students.

We have rotations for math and reading to practice different skills and to build independence. It is difficult for my students at the beginning of the year, but by December, they can usually work for a full 30 minutes without teacher intervention during their independent work time.

Including my students as leaders in social emotion and gaming situations has allowed them to be leaders and depend on positive behaviors for attention.

My Project

The X-ACTO pencil sharpener, Dixon Ticonderoga Woodcase Pencils, and Smead Poly Expanding Files will directly support the organizational and work skills of my students when they return to their homerooms. Materials organization can be a challenge for my students and having a separate place for their work turn-in and work retrieval will increase their time on task with work.

These supplies don't just help my room function, they empower students with special needs when they are with their peers.

Having clearly organized and communal supplies means my students never feel embarrassed because they forgot a pen, or defiant because they're masking insecurity over supplies.
