My Students

I teach a special education self-contained classroom. It is called the autism and life skills program. Some of the children I work with are very intelligent but struggle with being in the classroom and the typical school experience. Other children have significant delays and are working on academics two or three years below their grade level. They are also working on learning life skills.

Everyone learns differently.

I strive to create instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.

My Project

My students are very excited about brain games right now. They enjoy playing rubix cubes at recess and lunch. I want to offer more education fun things they can do on their downtime. My students are very interested in the escape room and lockout games and puzzles.

Education should be fun.

The students are seeking these games. I can easily incorporate them into my lesson plans. For example, as we are studying time and ratios I can have the students chart rubix cube times. Then covert them into ratios. I can use the escape room to help the student learn history, team work, social skills, math, reading and more. They will be engaging in both academic work and fun games. The students will then want to play with peers during down time. They are going to eagerly practice their academics. It is priceless!
