My Students

I teach 3rd, 4th and 5th grade special education. My classroom is designed for students who learn differently and need an individualized approach. Students' learning may be impacted by a variety of differences such as learning disabilities, autism, chromosomal abnormalities, etc.

My classroom is a safe second home for special learners to learn reading, writing, math, science, social and life skills.

Differences are not deficits. In my classroom, students are empowered and encouraged. Thank you for your impact on this unique and deserving community!

My Project

One way we address social and life skills in our class is by making our own how-to books. So far this year, students have made their own books about "How to Calm Down" and "How to Focus." We have many amazing artists in our class. Students are often more motivated to write when they know they'll be able to illustrate when they're done.

The thermal book binder I'm requesting quickly and easily creates durable books for students to save and share their ideas.

I've also requested sets of book covers in multiple sizes so we'll be able to adjust according to student's preferences.

I've also asked for a set of speakers to plug into our presentation station. Thank you for your support!
