My Students

I teach in an ABA preschool classroom. My students are 3 to 5 years old and most have moderate to severe autism and speech and language delays.

My students are absolutely incredible individuals!

Their resiliency, love for learning, and curiosity are truly inspiring. Each day they come to school ready to learn, explore, discover, and have fun! My students love hands-on activities, and they learn best when using engaging, hands-on activities where they can work together. I would like to expand my classroom materials to benefit my students' needs.

My Project

A coil binding machine will help me create adapted materials that will last longer. My students learn best through hands on activities.

Help me make adapted materials last and enhance my students' learning!

A coil binding machine will help the materials I create last longer. I am also hoping to create portfolios for each child that they can bring home at the end of the school year. This binding machine will minimize the amount of prep work. The toys I am requesting in this project will enhance my students learning through play. The paper organizer I am requesting will help organize all of our construction paper so we can easily access it when needed.
