My Students

Hello, welcome to our world! My amazing students are being taught in a self-contained autistic classroom. They are driven by sensory needs. They enjoy technology, LEGO bricks, building things, and making things with their hands. We are a very low income school and a Title I school. This year, our school got a grant for all the students in the school to eat with “no charge” to their parents.

In my classroom, we are a family and help support each other.

Throughout our day, we do social skill stories, center time, and small group lessons. My students learn best through hands-on activities and projects. Loud noises, strange smells, bright lights, or not being able to understand someone’s demands can and at times scares my students. They need a safe place to learn, grow, and be loved. My classroom is their second home. I want my students to love learning and growing together. I am blessed to have most of my students for a few years, so I get to see them grow and develop into amazing young adults. Please join us in our journey.

My Project

I teach self-contained students with Autism. I am in need of a classroom laminator to meet their sensory/academic needs of hands-on ELA (Literacy) and Math Centers. With a classroom laminator I will be able to make different centers to help them learn their Dolch sight words, read simple sentences, practice their handwriting skills, work out math problems like addition, subtraction, place value, etc. My students learn the best through hands-on activities. We play a lot of Bingo games with their sight words, shapes, colors, basic math skills, place values, science skills and social skills. I need to be able to laminate materials so they can hold up to the daily use of my students. I will also now be able to make their work first, then reward systems (token systems) and their daily work schedules if I have a classroom laminator.
