My Students

Our class is an integrated class with a general education teacher, a special education teacher and 29 students, some of the students have IEP's which mean they have speech, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy or another need that they may need a classroom with 2 teachers in order to get the individualized attention to make them successful.

The class works very well together and always helps one another.

We were just switched to a flexible seating classroom and the children have adapted so nicely! We couldn't be more proud of these kids. They work hard and support one another.

My Project

Help us create a calm and relaxing reading area by donating new sturdy book crates to hold our wonderful world of books! Our class is so blessed to have a flexible seating arrangement where the students are able to choose the kind of chair or desk that makes them comfortable and able to work to their potential. We would love to complete the classroom with these new book baskets and some calming lights to keep with the mood of the room. Our integrated class is made up of a group of amazing children that care about each other and coming to school. The students love to learn and thrive in this type of learning environment. It would be so wonderful to have new storage for the books the children love to readevery day. Our baskets are broken and some are held together by tape. The children are gentle and take care of the baskets but they are worn down. We know the classroom would just come together with a cozy book nook feel if we had some new baskets and lights for the book area.
