My Students

I teach in a low income/high poverty school district where 100% of the students in the school receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite coming from a disadvantaged neighborhood, the students come to school very happy and very eager to learn every day.

The students that I have in my classroom that I service have Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disabilities.

They all vary with different strengths and abilities, and they need support to help to communicate and function socially with others.

My Project

My students need dramatic play materials, such as the Toddle Dress- Up Center to help develop their critical thinking skills, and to help them learn about the real world. During dramatic play the students will learn about the many different and important community helpers, such as nurses, firemen, doctors, post master, etc. Creativity and imagination are valued in my classroom, it helps to create an environment where students are encouraged to learn new things and to try out new ideas with dramatic play. The children will have an opportunity every day to pick a costume and use the Dress Up Center.
