My Students

Students that are apart of this classroom become family. I teach 6, 7, and 8th grade combined, in a special education day class. The students are compassionate, funny, and incredibly kind-hearted. Their disabilities are not a hindrance, but a strength, as it gives them an incredibly positive, authentic and unadulterated outlook on life.

All of my students are brilliant in their own ways, and each has a gift to give to the world through their uniqueness.

Working with them and getting to figure out their strengths and abilities is so rewarding.

My Project

We are currently studying two different books (Esperanza Rising and Seed Folks), as well as utilizing a lesson plan called SIPPS for language arts. We incorporate creativity and hands-on projects for the students, so they get the most out of each lesson.

With more school supplies, such as file folders, copy paper and dry erase markers, we are able to better organize the students completed work, show off exceptional work on our walls, have resources for students with disabilities such as ADHD who may need a break from the classroom lesson, or students who may have sensory overload issues.

With more supplies, teaching will become easier, and more productive for the students.
