My Students

These high schoolers have Individual Educational Plans (IEPs), thus have been placed in my Science Resource classes. Their special needs include mild Autism, ADHD, Emotional challenges, Speech and Language issues, etc. Fortunately, they're able to pursue the standard curriculum since they're higher functioning. They just do so in my smaller class setting where their individual learning needs can be better addressed, particularly through hands-on projects. Many of my students are especially intrigued by Marine life, since we live in Florida.

My Project

Due to the Special Needs of my high school students, most of them learn best through hands-on projects. Since we live near the Atlantic Ocean and Indian River Lagoon, Biology, Marine, and Environmental Sciences are all relevant.

The year Dissecting Squids were donated to our Science classes, almost every student listed that as their favorite lesson.

New students come in to my class having heard about the dissecting project and ask when they can do it, too. We couldn't do it last year due to funding. Please, will you make it a reality for them this year? Thank you!
