My Students

I serve all types of students throughout my day. Those who have learning, attention, and emotional disabilities, as well as those who are in the general education classroom. This upcoming year I will be teaching students and assisting teachers in the general education classroom and the Special Education Resource classroom at a school with enrollment of almost 1,000 students. I find all students and teachers want to experience educational success, and my goal is to assist them to do so!

My Project

Students in our school sometimes need a 5 minute break to either have a reward they have earned or a mental break from the stress and anxiety they feel being in the general education classroom.

Giving the students a choice to use sensory bins will help them be successful in the general education classroom.

The bins I create will be shared throughout our school, as needed. As a behavior specialist in our school I strive to find different, efficient ways to serve students as their needs arise. Creating bins to have ready to use will help serve students as needed.
