My Students

The students come to school happy, energetic and ready to start the day. My students love school, learning new things and exploring their environment. They are an awesome group of students despite their disabilities with communication. I teach severe and profound, intellectually delayed students.

Most of my students come from low income families.

Our school is a Title One school with grades pre-k through fifth. My school is a nurturing and caring environment. The staff members and students interact and embrace my students daily.

My Project

My students have to be moved in different seating positions several times a day. Items such as adapted chairs and adaptive wedges are essential items needed for my class. It is very important because their skin is so sensitive, they could develop pressure sores and their skin breakdown. When this happens they miss school and instruction. Besides, who would want to sit in the same place or position all day long? The special needs community is very small and we always need so much. Funds are limited but the need isn't. Please help me help my students. Thank you for your consideration.
