My Students

My students are in kindergarten through fifth grade with mild to severe disabilities, including Autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, and communication disorders.

"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." - Cheryl Suliteanu.

Help my students to successfully participate and enjoy school! Our elementary school is in a high-poverty area and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.

My Project

My students need lights to hang up around our classroom. The lights will help us to create a calming setting. My students need a canapy to put in the corner of our room. This canapy will be a place that the students can do to take a calm break or simply quietly read. The classroom environment and setting plays a big role in the child's education. My dream is to create such a loving and calming classroom environment that students will feel safe, loved, and smart everytime they walk in. Thank you so much for your support towards our classroom.
