My Students

My elementary special education students have a variety of backgrounds and needs. They are each unique and bring their own special twist to the classroom.

Being able to make a difference just by being a stable adult in their lives brings me such joy and pride in coming to work each day.

Even though some of the days are challenging, I realize the significance of this work. Being able to provide the students with fun and engaging lessons and activities helps bring the lessons to life.

My Project

The books I have requested will help students read books that are in their level and that are fun and engaging. By having a few of the same books we can use them in small group settings where the students can learn from each other as they hear each other read.

I look forward to presenting these books to my students and engaging them with new stories and pictures.

This will benefit my students by reminding them that people out there do care about them and their education. As a community we can come together for the good of the students and provide the materials they need.
