My Students

My students are bright, bubbly, and enthusiastic scholars! They come from across Boston to attend a specialized ABA program for students with autism and other disabilities. Our small classroom is rich with cultural and linguistic diversity, and is part of a larger, inclusive school community.

My students learn best in a small setting, with instruction designed to meet their academic and adaptive needs.

Each day, the students engage in activities that encourage their growth both as scholars and peers. I hope to provide them a structured, supportive classroom where they can reach their full potential!

My Project

My students need "brain food" to keep them focused throughout a long school day. I am requesting healthy, non-perishable snacks such as crackers, pretzels, and juice. Each day, we take a mid-morning movement break. Students re-energize their bodies with some stretching and a snack.

These supplies will guarantee that healthy food is available to students who come to school without a snack.

I want to make sure the physical needs of the students in my classroom are always met. When you are hungry, your body and mind is not ready to learn. A quick snack will help students reach their full potential!
