My Students

We are a Title I school, located in a very culturally diverse neighborhood in Queens. We service students of all backgrounds and abilities, from pre-k through 8th grade. Many students spend their pre-k, elementary, and middle school years in this building, so we get to see the community grow and create life-long bonds and friendships.

Working in this school is a privilege that I hold very near and dear because I grew up in this neighborhood.

I went to school a few blocks away at a neighboring school, and I grew up with some of the parents of the children I now service.

My Project

As a special education teacher, I teach small groups of students in a classroom of 30 students. Sometimes the classroom becomes overwhelming for students who struggle in certain areas. Learning in small groups provides necessary reteaching and modeling.

I chose this easel for my project because it would be beneficial to my students to have another area in the class, where they could be instructed and provided with information and visuals, in a smaller group setting.

This easel will provide opportunities for students to work at a pace that helps them meet objectives. Usually,​ the easel in the class is used for whole-group instruction. I feel that another easel in the room would be designated for small group learning because it is just as important.

I'm looking forward to providing my students with another tool to advance their learning.
