My Students

My classroom is where I am able to find joy every single day. My students are an amazing group of kids with a wide range of severe needs. Days in my classroom focus on functional academics, community, and transition skills.

Fun mattters.

Fun is a staple in my classroom. We always strive to make learning fun and ensure students enjoy school. It's my hope that every day students enter my classroom excited to be at school and eager to learn, and leave my classroom feeling confident and proud of their accomplishments that day. We celebrate small victories and always, always, always make time for fun.

My Project

In many projects we try to do in my classroom, the biggest barrier is cutting. Use of scissors, even adapted scissors, doesn't always leave us with clean cuts and shapes that look like what we need. A Cricut machine would help us immensely, as students would be able to make choices of designs they wish to be cut, and let the machine do its work! In the end, they will be so proud of a quality looking project that THEY made, without as much hand-over-hand assistance.

A Cricut is capable of so much!

Aside from cutting paper, the new Cricut machines also have capabilities that will help my students with job related skills. Students will be able to help design make personalized items that can be assembled and sold. Funds raised from items we sell directly fund our community outings that are so vital to learning.

In everything we do in my room, we always want to encourage independence. A machine that allows students to make projects independently without clumsy scissors would be so appreciated! My students and I can't thank donors enough!
