My Students

I teach a class of elementary age students that are all on the autism spectrum. Most of my students are nonverbal and have communication devices to communicate with staff and peers. My students have unique learning needs that require individualized instruction to acquire and maintain skills. Despite the challenges my students face each day, they continue to work hard and inspire me to provide them with the best educational experiences possible.

My Project

This is my first year teaching and I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity. Unfortunately, as a first year teacher there are many items that one needs to make sure their classroom is prepared. Many of the items on this list are basic, every day supplies but are so important to the functioning of a classroom. Items like hanging files and file folders will ensure that students have a place to keep and organize their individual papers and data. Command hooks, staples and a stapler will provide a way for students to access individual schedules hanging on a wall or see class made anchor charts posted on a bulletin board. Tape, paper clips, and rubber bands will be utilized in a variety of visual math activities and used to make individual math game spinners. Students will also love having their own notepad to write on. Thank you for helping me to provide my learners with all of the tools they need for an enjoyable and successful school year!
