My Classroom

My job assignment is fourth through sixth grade special education. More than half of my time is spent in other teachers' classrooms with inclusion. I share this classroom with the ELL teacher. We blocked off one corner of the room for her to have a space. She spends only a small part of her time here because she travels to all schools in the county.

One of the best investments I have made is purchasing the bins. I store each set of books along with all teaching materials for that book in separate bins. The bins also contain units I have created for other subjects such as Native Americans, Christmas, etc.

The magnets on the front of each desk have the students' names printed on them. I can easily rearrange seating by just moving the magnets. Students are encouraged to display pieces of work of their choosing on the front of their desks. They may change them out as often as they wish.
