My Students

As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. The students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention.

Many are students with a range of disabilities, emotional disturbance, and specific learning disabilities. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

We want to flex their muscle memory and give them things to learn and grow strong. If you help them, they will see, the wonderful world we live in, yes you and me. The balls, bricks, sand and water tables, and gadgets lift them up, and they can learn to play with the water, sand, wind, and explore our world through the sense of touch, sight, and smell. Without these things, a playground is a sad place where they cannot do more than run and jump. Help our kids to learn the things they need to have great muscle minds and be able to do great things.
