My Students

All teachers are special. Special education teachers have extra special needs for their students. My students aren't conventional learners. I teach a variety of students with a variety of different learning disabilities. Some verbal, some non-verbal, but not being able to speak is not the same as not having anything to say! It is important to understand each individual and how differently each learns. I create personalized lesson plans assessing the needs of each individual so each student can thrive and reach their maximum growth potential.

My Project

I need a place to hang all of my pocket charts in my small classroom! I use pocket charts daily in my instruction. We use them for morning routines, to go over the flow of the day, to sequence stories, to display visuals and for students to come up and manipulate them! I use pockets charts in all academic areas as well as for behavior management. This year I will be teaching 6:1:1 - students with various disabilities- pocket charts really help my non-verbal students to participate in class!

Thanks everyone in advance for your ongoing support.

I really appreciate it.
