My Students

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my students and I. I became a Special Education Teacher because of a boy who has autism. He opened my eyes 16 years ago into a world that I have fallen in love with. Actually before him, I didn't even know there were classes called "special ed." Because of this young boy, I am here now, 14 years strong, teaching these exceptional students to become life-long learners and to persevere through their hardships.

Teaching isn't an easy job; however, the smiles, the laughs, the light bulb moments are all positive signs that I am reaching each one of my leaders.

My classroom is full of eager leaders. They come to school to learn, play, and create. My leaders' needs vary in severity and area. They may have behavioral needs, academic needs, and/or social needs - each as unique as the individual learner. However, their ambitions and desires are no different than their typical peers. We are different but not less. Please join me in supporting our future leaders!

My Project

Trying to reach every learner/leader in my classroom is a huge task. My leaders' abilities are all over the place. I can't teach straight from a book, nor can I teach without visuals. I have to accommodate and many times modify work so my students can all access learning. What I do for one, sometimes doesn't work for another.

The materials I am requesting are materials that will fill in the gaps for some of my learners which include books, new seating options, and materials to help with social studies and art.

With the materials I am requesting, my leaders will have a meaningful classroom learning experience. The books will be used as a novel study and students will take home the books to keep as we will annotate together and make notes. The stools will provide a new seating option at our low table. Supplemental materials from TeachersPayTeachers will support our learning in social studies and art. This project is a hot mess! However, all the materials are needed to create a learning environment for all my leaders to thrive!
