My Students

I am a second-year special education teacher. Every student in my school receives free lunch. I teach 3rd-5th grade students in a self-contained classroom. My students have a wide range of disabilities and needs. Disabilities include autism spectrum disorder, learning disability, emotional disability, intellectual disability, other health impairment, developmental delay, and language/speech impairment. I want to do everything in my power to help my students reach their fullest potential despite their disabilities.

"Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela

My Project

My students need the opportunity to see and learn about various live animals. If funded, the Greenville Zoo Outreach program will visit our classroom with live animals! They will also provide my students with an informational program about the animals. This programs also includes answering any questions my students may have and allowing them to pet, hold, and touch certain animals. Receiving funding for this project will help my students become more knowledge about animals. My students will learn about the characteristics and habitats of these amazing creatures. I believe that this will be a wonderful hands-on and engaging learning opportunity that my students will never forget. Thank you so much for considering supporting us!
