My Students

I work with amazing children who participate in a special education program in a public school setting. My students have special and unique learning needs due to autism, speech/language disorders, health impairments, and other qualifying conditions.

My students are accessing the Common Core curriculum and are meeting their goals, objectives, and grade-level standards due to their hard work, determination, and their desire to learn and achieve in spite of their challenges.

They are an inspiration and are determined to achieve on a daily basis.

My Project

Our classroom needs basic supplies to make sure we can continue to do extraordinary things on a daily basis. We are in need of things like paper, pencils, glue sticks and scissors. These are items that need no explanation. They are a necessity in a school setting.

Other items that are super important to our classroom include Kleenex, for those runny nose days and Band-Aids for those "oops, I hurt myself" days.

Why do we need laminating pouches? They ensure that our materials last a long time. If items are laminated, not even sticky fingers or a wet sneeze can ruin them!

All of these basic materials help to provide many learning opportunities for my extraordinary students.
