My Students

Currently, I work alongside another special education teacher. Together, we are teachers of twelve Third and Fourth grade students who have been diagnosed with autism. Our remarkable group of students live in an urban area. Our students are very diverse each coming from very different backgrounds.

Each student works hard despite their learning disabilities.

Some of our students face difficulties not only in the classroom but at home. Our goal is to provide them with a positive classroom that promotes learning.

My Project

We are requesting lap desks, stools and room dividers so we can make it possible for the students to stay on task and remain focused. By providing them with the flexible seating and room dividers we can make it possible for the students to learn in the environment that is comfortable for them.

Flexible seating allows students to find comfortable positions around the classroom to work.

A student who is comfortable is productive. Many of our students need to move. These chairs allow them to rock, bounce, lean and wiggle.

Please help- by donating to our project you will be helping to improve our students focus which in turn will advance their academic achievement. We can’t wait to see the look on their faces when they see the new seating options available to them.
