My Students

I have a group of visual, energetic special education learners who are motivated, and hard workers. They enjoy coming to school and learning new things. They cannot wait to see if there's anything new within the classroom, and are always excited to talk about new things they've learned or seen.

Our class is full of energy and students who are ready to learn!

Most of my students have limited resources outside of school, therefore school could possibly provide their only chance to experience enriching activities. My staff and I strive to help these students out in every way possible on fueling their mind, and providing resources they may not get at home.

My Project

My project will help my students stay healthy and focused on their goals by preventing illnesses through the use of hand sanitizer! Keeping them with a full tummy and with energy will also keep them healthy and in school.

As a special education teacher; I strive to give my students the best and encourage them to continue to come to school everyday!

We can achieve so much with attendance rates staying high, and progressing through the year while keeping our classroom germ free year around! With your help, we can count on being in school daily, and helping my students have a snack. These small cookies and skinny popcorn, Cheetos along with other snacks my students will be able to focus and learn, as well as have comfort in knowing they’ll be able to have something to eat in school! The students will also use hand sanitizer to keep away. This is very helpful for prevention of spreading germs.
