My students attend a Title I public school in California. These wonderful pre-K-8th grade students are eager and hardworking. These students have Individualized Education Programs or IEPs, which detail specific targets for academic and behavioral growth. The teaching is specialized to meet their individualized needs, and their goals are closely monitored. In our classroom, we like to build a special relationship with our students, to make sure they feel confident and productive! They are a great group of kids, and we enjoy working with them! Winning this IPEVO would be a great to show my students that hard work, seeking support and helpful people are out there cheering for them to succeed. In addition to all those positives, I would have a tool to address and support different learning styles.
