My Students

I teach PPCD (Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities). Our classroom is filled with books, laughter, music, and the development of language! My elementary school is a Title I school with the majority low-income students in Austin. Our students are socially, racially, and economically diverse. Almost 20% of our students are receiving Special Education services.

Teachers at my school work exceptionally hard to accommodate all of our special learners and find ways to teach outside the box.

Our students are eager to learn, eager to grow, and eager to be successful! We represent the diversity of our unique neighborhood and city.

My Project

We need a new train set to replace our old one. Our train tracks set is many, many years old and falling apart. It would be awesome to have a brand new set of tracks and trains. Trains and building tracks offer a lot of vocabulary development during play. We have a great train table and our students love to play with trains. In addition, the construction kit will give them opportunities to build and develop vocabulary and practice constructing a variety of objects. The train phonics game will help the emerging readers develop their initial sounds and help with reading readiness.
