I teach special education students at my school. I have students from ages 5 to 17. My students range from pre-verbal to students with high functioning autism.
My students are unique, creative, talented, and gifted in their own ways.
It is important for my students to experience education in a way that is engaging and teaches them a love of learning. I love the look in students' eyes when they finally grasp a concept they have been working on. Teaching is my passion, and I love my students.
I need cube organizers in my classroom so that I can sort manipulatives, toys, chargers, headphones, and more. Having a clean classroom helps to create a calming, homey feeling in a classroom so that students feel comfortable while learning.
I pay close attention to my classroom environment.
I serve several children with autism, emotional disorders, and sensory issues. It is important to keep a safe, calm, loving environment in which they will flourish. It is difficult for children to focus when there is too much stuff visible. At the same time, we do often need extra stuff to teach a particular lesson or concept.
