My Students

My students are special ed/special needs students who would benefit greatly from enhancements in our classroom. I'm a newly credentialed teacher who came into the school approximately 9 weeks after school started and replaced a long-term substitute. I'm teaching these 6th-8th grader, Mild-Moderate Special Ed. students Study Skills (improved study habits, math, language arts, science, and social sciences). I would love to bring more needed classroom enhancements into my classroom to help create a space of ease for more powerful learning and work production.

My Special Ed classes are in a Title I school (low-income) with students of varying ethnic backgrounds and learning issues ranging from ADHD, autism, mood disorders to a multitude of learning disorders.

Our middle school is in a small beach community with an incredibly dedicated and caring staff. I hope I can live up to my students' needs and do 'right' by them!

My Project

These final materials which have been so generously donated by you to us will put the finishing touches on our room! With our additional seating, the extra lap desks will give many students a chance to work in a very comfortable seat. The stand-up desk will be great for my students who really can't sit for more than a few minutes at a time. The projector and extra sound will assist me as I need to teach my students with varied abilities in a multi-modal approach now. The nice colored pens will encourage more writing since it will be more fun. The shelving will help to get us more organized.
