My Students

I teach in a large, urban kindergarten through eighth grade school with a large population of students with special needs and other health impairments. All of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. Moreover, the students have diverse backgrounds with various family situations.

My students are in grade five.

They have special needs and other health impairments that impede their learning on a daily basis. Unfortunately, these struggles prove to be too much for the students, so they are easily frustrated and lack the motivation to learn.

My Project

My students have learning disabilities and other impairments that impede their learning. Therefore, it is crucial that I differentiate my instruction based on the students' skill levels, as well as the modalities that best help them learn such as kinesthetic, visual or auditory.

My students need toner with a drum, copy paper, a hole puncher, and a stapler, so, they can complete hands-on learning projects that will pique their interest, while motivating them to complete their work.

In addition, I am also requesting Clorox wipes and tissues, so, my students can have a sanitized work space and practice good hygiene skills.

Please consider donating to this worthy project, so, my students will have the basic necessities they need to be successful in school!
