My Students

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and almost all of them have some sort of emotional, social, learning, or physical needs. Our students come to Phoenix because they did not fit into their school. We offer an environment of personalized learning while teaching social/emotional skills. Our school does not offer after school sports and have very few opportunities to get involved clubs. While our kids come from fragile backgrounds, they are all full of personality and unique characteristics!

My Project

I would like to add to my classroom game collection. Games are the best way to teach social skills to children! They can learn how to interact appropriately with peers while getting to know each other. They can learn how to win or lose appropriately as well.

Many of our students do not get to experience game play at home, so this can provide them with friendly competition in a safe environment!

Game play and competition skills are a very important part of my student's lives and can help shape them into friendly competitors. Help them reach this goal for classroom games!
