My Students

I am a first year high school teacher to students with moderate to severe special needs. My students will not only learn academics this school year, but also job skills, daily living skills, hygiene, cooking, and more. Throughout the school year, my students will focus their efforts to prepare themselves to be independent adults.

Each of my students has a unique personality, drive to learn, and individual passions.

I will incorporate my student's interests by planning meaningful and engaging activities with the help of Donors Choose.

My Project

My students need basic start-up classroom supplies so I can tailor to their individual needs. I will be using the laminator to make their communication boards, and individualized schedules. The students will use the binders and dividers for their English and History classes.

These materials will help my students learn to organize and keep up with their materials which will help them practice becoming independent learners.

Your donation will also provide the students with items to create schedules and materials (card stock, laminator, sheet protectors), an electric pencil sharpener, and fluorescent light filters. I use these filters for some students with autism who are sensitive to the fluctuations of the fluorescent lights.

These materials are crucial to my students to organize and enhance their educational experience.
