My Students

My students are energetic special needs learners. We are constantly looking for new ways to keep them focused while allowing them to move around. My students come from all background and cultures.

My goal is to have a safe inclusive classroom where all students care grow and share.

I work with each student individually to help them with individual goals and kindergarten readiness skills.

They are curious, enthusiastic and creative and are ready to be challenged. I want to do all I can to encourage life long learning.

My Project

We can't wait to use these art materials in our classroom! they will be available each day to all students during center time to create their own creations.

We encourage children to create 3D structures, art depicting emotions, nature collages, and much more.

We love expressing ourselves through art!

Children can use the play-dough stamps, rolling pins, and cookie cutters to explore play-dough textures and develop hand strength and fine motor skills.

Paint brushes can be used in art center to paint or at our art easel for children to paint or mix colors. We love art and hope you help us fund this project!
