My Students

I teach 12-13-year-old students with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments in our school's 7th grade special education inclusion program. My students focus their time in school on learning and studying; their home situations can be unstable and school is a stable environment. My team and I work with each student to help them communicate what their personal goals and visions for their academic studies are.

I am a seventh grade special education and reading teacher in a low-income school district currently in state receivership.

Our school has made amazing growth in the past five years, and the students will continue to strive for the best. The seventh graders are hardworking students and deserve to have every opportunity offered to them regardless of their hometown.

My students overcome obstacles every day to be the best students they can be. They attend an extended school day, participate in intramural sports and after-school activities, and love their families and community.

My Project

It takes a lot to create a beautiful, welcoming classroom for our students.

These donations will help complete my classroom community and stock my classroom with all the necessary supplies.

I shop deals, but end up spending much of my own money to create the best classroom for my students. These donations would make a huge difference to me and my students for the whole year!

A printer for my classroom, tape, posters, white board markers, calendars, construction paper, disinfecting wipes, erasers, pencils...all of these supplies will help me create the best learning environment for my students that I can.
