My Students

I am a special education preschool teacher for all learners. My students have a range of abilities and support necessities. Our program uses the Creative Curriculum to guide our students' learning which requires accommodations and modifications appropriate for our students' needs. My students are extremely active, and their attention spans last no longer than ten to fifteen minutes per activity. My students have many needs from basic daily life skills (e.g. diapering) to exposure to age-appropriate standards-based curriculum.

My school is a Title I school that serves students who come from low-income families and all qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program.

My students need to be highly motivated by a variety of resources to capture their attention and develop their individual strengths. My students are eager learners and come to school excited for the day. They are amazing little human beings who will become important contributors to society with the appropriate support and resources.

My Project

My goal for this project is to provide my students with a new classroom carpet that is large enough to help keep students at a safe distance from each other but still reflect a sense of group meetings.

During these difficult times in the middle of a pandemic it is extremely beneficial to have a carpet with visual support that students can easily identify a spot that belongs to them.

Students wellness would be supported throughout our daily routine with the use of this large classroom carpet. The carpet will allow students to safely participate in whole group activities.

Thank you for taking the time to invest in my students learning!
