My Students

I teach a Special Education, self contained class with 11th and 12th graders. My students are very bright and smart, but just need someone to sit down with them and break down the lessons in a way that they can understand. They just need a little bit of extra help. Many of them have sensory needs that must be met in order for them to be able to learn.

My Project

These materials will help my students learn by giving them fidgets to help focus, flexible seating for sensory issues, and blue light dimming to eliminate eye strains. We do a lot of IEP and goal work so having a printer in the classroom will help me print work for them on different levels as we go along. I will also teach a career prep program, so we can print job applications and other materials needed to prepare them for after high school. The headsets will help students for virtual learning to be able to tune out back round noise. The Yoga mats will help with social emotional and meditation time. They will also help when being spaced out as a social distancing visual. The punch cards will help to enforce a positive intervention behavioral support system in the classroom.
