My Students

Amazing is the word that comes to mind when describing the students that I get to learn with each day. I work with about 30 students a day from K-5th grades who need help with reading. I work with these students by providing reading support through reading interventions. Stability comes from the school for many of my students because the home may not always be a place of consistency. Many of my students come from single-family homes where grandparents are taking on the role of mom and dad. Many of my students don't know where their next meal is coming from and their main concern is not school.

No matter the struggles my students face, they are all fearless, inquisitive, and enthusiastic learners.

They have the drive to know more and grow each passing day.

My Project

Hands on learning is best for students that struggle with basic skills in reading or math . A hands on experience give students a concrete understanding of concepts and making learning more fun. Students will be able to use these tool to help with with counting, recognizing numbers and other early numeracy skills. The pandemic has resulted in gaps in learning and students that are struggling to learn basic early math skills.

Using hands-on manipulatives will help to develop early math skills and give them the opportunity for hands on learning in order to close gaps that have been created by the pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic my role was to serve as the reading interventionist and now I have the added responsibility of helping struggling learners with early math concepts. Students that struggle with basic concepts and require intensive interventions need ways in which they can learn to count, identify numbers and compare and manipulate quantities.
