I teach in a high needs school district with students who come from a diverse range of cultures. My classroom is compiled of 8 ninth grade students diagnosed with ASD. These students are eager and ready to take on the challenge of high school! At the end of the year, a goal I have for my students is to enable them to pass the required exams to graduate one day.
OUR VISION: Through the work of all, we will achieve inclusive excellence.
We are looking to set up an Aquaponics System in our classroom. These supplies will help us build the system, stabilize the environment for both fish and plants, and learn through trial and error how to maintain a system. This will give us the ability to learn things like the nitrogen cycle with a real world example. This is the best way for students with ASD to learn, by getting thoroughly involved in their learning! I am so excited to share in this new STEM project with my students. This will create many lessons throughout the year in Math, Science, and even Computer Science. As an added bonus they will also learn the value of taking care of another living thing and reaping the benefits of planting a garden which are also invaluable skills as well.
