My Students

Working with learners with Autism is both challenging and rewarding. In order to work with a learner with autism, an educator must possess the knowledge and understanding of the learner. My learners use many modalities of learning to gain knowledge in the classroom.

Learners with Autism show the rest of the world that all learners can gather and possess knowledge.

They teach others how to use the senses to learn about the world around them. Therefore, educators must catch up with the learners with autism.

My Project

This professional Bootcamp Makerspace is designed to teach an educator how to use everyday items in the classroom to teach science, engineering, math, and technology. In order to teach learners, educators can use what a learner is interested in and build upon it.

Using this professional Bootcamp on Makerspace will enhance the learning that is already going on in the classroom.

The professional development will teach what is needed in a makerspace, how to implement lesson plans, where to set it up in the classroom and how to engage students in learning about the world around them.
