My Students

I am a self-contained Special Education Teacher of Functional Skills and I am honored to teach some amazing little people with different disabilities including: Autism, Orthopedic Impairment, and Intellectual Disabilities. We have a very diverse class population. My students are African American, Caucasian, Latino, and Arabic. Despite their limited abilities in class, I let them know that with love and dedication they can accomplish their individual goals. We strive each day to work together as a team helping each other.

My Project

The materials that I am requesting will provide more hands-on assisted learning for my students with disabilities. Working in small groups will enhance the experience of more one-on-one assistance to each individual student. The students will be able to work on various activities that can make learning more fun and enjoyable for them as they can see their growth and progress in Reading and Math. The headphones will serve a dual purpose. They will provide a sound barrier for the students who have a difficult time drowning out the loud noises of some of their classmates, and they will be used for the technology center rotations.
