Abbigail Laws, Special Education

Hi, my name is Abbigail Laws a proud graduate of Medgar Evers College with a teaching license focused in Early Childhood and Special Education. While completing first year here I taught second grade and this year I will be teaching first grade. My educational philosophy is simple. I believe anyone is capable of learning, but everyone has a different way of absorbing and synthesizing the information given to him or her in their educational journey. I am excited for the new school year. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! During the academic school year, I plan on creating a safe learning environment for my students, and getting to know each and every one of my them and their families. I believe that it is important to have high expectations for my students, and collaborate with my colleagues, parents, and education professionals to ensure my students’ success.  

My favorite movie of all time is The Little Mermaid. I absolutely love nature and enjoy being able to take a stroll with my bicycle around Starrett City Park. I hope this quote by Maya Angelou will resonate with you “If you’re always trying to be normal you will never know how amazing you can be.” I look forward to having the opportunity to collaborate and build community with you throughout the school year.
