My Students

This year I took on a new adventure! I moved to a school that provides services to students and individuals (preschool - age 21) with severe cognitive and physical impairments. This school services individuals with severe disabilities within the district and other local districts that exhibit a need for highly specialized educational support for individual students. I couldn't be more excited to begin this new adventure.

These students work so hard, despite the many challenges they face because of disabilities, disrupted home lives, being homeless or in danger of homelessness, and living in poverty.

Students face additional challenges and special needs including speech and language disorders, ADHD/ADD, physical impairments, cognitive impairments and health issues like seizure disorders.

Our classroom will truly be their home away from home. In our classroom,​ we will be a family, and everyone will work to do their best and to be their best every day.

My Project

I love to incorporate art into our learning tasks. Students love activities that involve hands-on crafts like painting, stringing beads, as well as cutting and gluing. Many students in my classroom are working to master important mathematical concepts like coin recognition and counting sets of coins. I am seeking a variety of craft supplies like construction paper, acrylic paint, glue, pencils, and pens. With these materials we will be able to do a variety of tasks like build money mobiles, or paint a piggy banks and "fill" them with a certain amount of money. Students will love incorporating these hands-on activities into our daily learning. These activities will provide my learners with opportunities to enhance their financial literacy skills.
