My Students

I am a Special Education Teacher (Life Skills) in Port Arthur, Texas. Most of my students sustained the worst water damage from Hurricane Harvey. These children have low-income households where they can not even afford to repair the damages. Due to the hurricane, most of them were displaced. I teach all subjects, even specials if needed, to students in grades kindergarten to 5th, most of which are KG- 2nd grade level. I really enjoy my students, and a new day brings new stories. They come into class each day eager to start their day with something new and exciting to learn. My students' disabilities range from Intellectually Disabled, Autistic, ADHD, and/or Learning Disability just to name a few.

My Project

My class can always use the basic cleaning and classroom supplies in our classroom. We teach our students life skills, and there isn't a day that goes by, that one of my little ones drop food or milk. They are learning how to do things on their own and how to be independent.

My students need to learn how to feed themselves, as well as clean after themselves and paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and ink are a "must have" in our room.

Clorox/Lysol wipes are very helpful in wiping down our tables and getting them germ free. There are so many students with allergies, and we would like to be healthy as can be. Sometimes, we still get the sniffles, so of course we need something soft for our noses. We are requesting paper towels.
