My Students

I'm a teacher in an elementary public school. I serve students with different disabilities in a 4th/5th grade level classroom. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking for creative and simple ways to foster independence, kindness, and meaningful learning experiences for all of them.

My students come to school eager to learn, they are kind, and talented in many ways.

They like to move, they love lots of positive attention and praise, they like to learn new information. They all receive a free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me, they all had made great progress. By meeting their needs in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to help them even more reaching their individual goals.

My Project

My students come into the classroom with a variety of needs, and many struggle with the ability to build positive relationships. Board games are excellent tools to build a positive classroom community, in addition, to learn and practice social skills. Also, board games will provide my students with the opportunity to know each other more.

My hope is for my students to make new friends, practice their social skills, and have fun at the same time!

Please help us purchase some social skills games as well as some classic table and board games like connect 4, Guess Who?, Sorry! and a few others to achieve our goal!
