My Students

My name is Casey and I teach in a 3rd grade Special Ed co-teach classroom. That means that several of my babies come with labels attached to them, but that just means that we know how to work really extra hard at learning! My students love math, memes, and listening to Taylor Swift songs on repeat while they work. They struggle with organization but make up for it by being kind and thoughtful to those that struggle a little more than others in our room.

My babies are as loud and funny and kind and messy as they are diverse; I promise, if you met us, you'd fall in love!

Because there are so many students in my class with ADD or ADHD or autism or whatever other labels that have been assigned to them, our classroom tends to move very quickly and can be a little bit noisy, but it's ok because we need that movement to help us learn. They love technology, reading books about other cultures, building things in science, and challenging me to dance-offs any chance they get.

My Project

My class LOVES the Who Was ....? show on Netflix! Imagine our excitement when we found out there is a book series that goes along with the show! My class loves to read, so getting these books would be an excellent addition to our classroom library. In my last Donor's Choose project, I ordered seven Who Was...? books and my class loved them. I would love to enlarge my collection and use these books for a biography project for my babies!

If we receive these books, we will use them for a 21st century biography project.

Students will create their own Who Was....? episode based on the book they select. Students will be the writers and producers of our school’s Who Was...? Show!
