My Students

My students are a very special group of children. Together with my wonderful paraprofessionals; we are the Life Skills classroom on our elementary campus. Our children are from a variety of backgrounds. Many parts of our neighborhoods struggle, especially now. All of my students have survived Hurricane Harvey. Some of their families fared well, while others lost everything.

I passionately believe that all students have purpose and all have the ability to learn, including mine.

They can make a difference.

My Project

Two-thirds of my students are autistic. Just like other children; they have strong dislikes and preferences regarding foods that they eat. Unfortunately; their preferences are often limited. So many factors determine their choices: flavor, texture, and smell. Any one of these factors may act as a deterrent in whether that child will eat any of the school lunch provided. This directly affects their ability to focus and perform.

As a teacher, I am more concerned about my autistic children having healthy snacks that they will eat and be able to perform academically versus pushing them to "clean their plate".

Your generosity will truly be a blessing. Thank you!
