Every student in my school receives free breakfast and lunch. We are located in a high needs area of Chicago.
My classroom currently serves students with the highest needs in regards to cognitive impairment, behavior, adaptive or functional skills, and life skills.
We tailor our classroom to meet each student’s individual needs and goals. We ensure that all of our students have an opportunity to learn and grow to their individual fullest potential. Our ultimate goal is for our students to be integrated members of their community.
We are in sensory overload in our classroom! The students are struggling to transition between winter and spring breakand are having frequent meltdowns. We know, based on the past school year, how important diffusing essential oils is for our students. The most calming and favorite blend with all of the students is lavender, lemon, and mint. We diffuse these oils all day long both in the front of the classroom and the back of the classroom with fans supporting the flow of the scent. We hope to continue to offer this experience to our students with your donations! Thank you!
