My Students

My classroom is a mix of students with special education needs and general education students. All of my students' needs are vast, but they love to learn and they work very hard. They want to grow as students, as well as individuals. They are a class of individuals with many different learning styles and needs.

My students are learners and they try their hardest to be the best students they can.

However, many of them have learning disabilities or speech and language delays. They learn in many different ways and have many different needs. Many of them come from low, socio-economic homes and school is their safety net. We are a Title One school where all of our students receive free lunch. It's a place where they feel safe and cared for.

My Project

This project is for a mail center for our classroom. We want an area in the classroom where students are able to find all the flyer, homework and other paperwork that is given out on a daily basis. We want every student in our classroom to have their own mail box. It is also a great place for students to return lost books and other items. Students can store the materials they need for homework and never forget what they need to bring home. It is also a great place to store crayons and markers. We want to keep everything in a centralized location.
