I have been a middle school ELA special education teacher for four years. I have three self contained classes for grades 5-7 with students that are reading at a 1st-4th grade level. I also co-teach reading for 5th and 6th grade. I use My Sidewalks and Reading Street. Follow @curtis_spedteam on Instagram for tips related to My Sidewalks and product updates!
I teach in all different styles because not one size fits all. I teach through whole class, small group, one to one, discussion, technology, and independent.
