My Students

I teach in a bridged kindergarten/first grade 12:1:1 self contained special education classroom within the public school community. The majority of my students are 2 or more years behind grade level and are struggling to stay motivated to meet their academic goals.

My classroom enviroment includes students ranging in disabilities and abilities.

Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking forward to teaching them life long skills that will allow them to become self motivaters with confidence in reaching their goals, while also meeting the comon core standards. In my classroom I strive to create multiple entry points designed for each individual learner to provide the opportuities that their peers have. My students enjoy activities that include movement, music, and technology. It provides them with the sensory stimulation that they need in order to grasp new concepts taught. Their attention spans are short during instruction, however, when given a chance to use technology in the classroom, I find that not only do they enjoy learning, they also have shown evidence of retantaining the information and taking their learning a step further.

My students require hands on and multiple opportunities to keep them enaged in learning.

My Project

We all know that it can be very expensive to fund a printing station in the classroom, so I have been actively planning and purchasing items since last year to create a place where children can create various projects and have access to differentiated "On Demand" tasks to meet their educational needs. It would be amazing to have a supply of paper, ink, and folders to keep our work neat and organized. I am excited to provide multiple opportunities to create meaningful pieces, projects and stories that they will cherish and be proud to show off not only to their peers, but to their parents and loved ones.

Confidence is a major" key" in child development,and by providing our learners with this special "Printing Station" in the classroom, they will be more inclined to create beautiful pieces of literature illustrated and written by them just like their favorite authors.

The "Printing Station" will be a place where students can publish their writing pieces all year long and add their stories to our classroom library for all to enjoy.
