I have been teaching at Head-start for the past two years. At the beginning of my career, I have several children in my class with special needs, and aim to develop a curriculum that fits the needs of ALL of the students in my classroom.
Prior to working for Head start, creating specific adaptations for children in my classroom was not something I had much experience doing. However, since I began working for this program, I feel that making adaptations and accommodations for students in my class has become a strong suit of mine. By configuring what will work best for everyone in my classroom, I was able to modify my curriculum and classroom routine to fit their specific need(s), to accommodate for all children. As I continue to grow professionally, I have become inspired by the challenge of stimulating my students who do not have an interest in learning, and the ones who have a hard time focusing or engaging in the learning. I am driven by a desire to reach and engage these students, and have made it my goal to make coming to school a positive experience for every single one of my students. The idea of the concept “learning by doing” is one that I embrace. By providing students with the opportunity to explore open-ended activities and experiments, they can work cooperatively to solve real-world problems that correlate with the curriculum. In doing this, I have become a facilitator in the learning process while my students became active researchers and participants in their own learning. Every element of the curriculum in my store, is intentionally designed to allow for the children to explore all the learning domains in a fun and creative way; while still meeting the common core standards. The curriculum consists of both independent and teacher-guided activities and lesson plans. All of this occurs in a concrete setting, giving the preschoolers multiple opportunities to gain the skills necessary to expand their vocabulary and enhance their language development. My shop consists of developmentally appropriate individual lesson plans (by subject area), units (consisting of all lesson plans in each area), and behavior management techniques that can be implemented into an inclusive classroom.
