My Students

My students enjoy learning and they work really hard. My students LOVE school so much that they even come to school sick. Some of them don't even want to go home at the end of the day. I consider school as being the BEST part of their day.

I teach high school life skills.

My students have an IQ 69 or less. They are usually diagnosed with ID (formerly known as MR), Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury, etc. Every day is a new adventure!

My Project

I walked into a colleagues room and saw her Lego wall. I knew immediately that I had to have one for my students.

The possibilities of a Lego wall are endless.

These materials will allow my students to tap into their creative side. I can use it as part of my behavior system. It can be also used for project based learning.

Another purposes for the Lego wall is it can be used as a way for my students to relieve stress and frustration. Many of my students walk into the classroom with negative feelings about things that have happened at home. The Lego wall will allow them to vent those feelings in a productive way!
