I service K-2 students with identified special needs such as Learning Disabilities and Developmental Delays. These students come from mostly single parent homes and from the housing projects that surround our school. My fellow teachers and I must often help our students to overcome the emotions and hardships that come with the things they see and experience at home, before we can effectively teach them.
I work with my students daily in small groups to improve their academic and social skills. I utilize many different methods of teaching and reaching my students and their various different learning styles (hands on activities, using technology, small group instruction, repeated practice, ect.). Donations made to my students and I would provide much needed monies and materials that will make differentiated teaching and learning easier.
