My Students

This upcoming year I’m embarking on a new adventure! I’m moving to a school that provides services to students and individuals (preschool - age 21) with severe cognitive and physical impairments. This school services individual with severe disabilities within the district and other local districts that exhibit a need for highly specialized educational support for individual students. I couldn't be more excited to begin this new adventure.

These students work so hard, despite the many challenges they face because of disabilities, disrupted home lives, being homeless or in danger of homelessness, and living in poverty.

Our classroom will truly be like their home away from home. In our classroom,​ we will be a family, and everyone will work to do their best and to be their best every day.

My Project

Our recess/playground equipment desperately needs new playground activities. We have two large pieces of equipment to play on and a couple of scooters, and that is it! My students desperately need to MOVE when they go outside but there are not a lot of options for them. Playground balls with provide them with opportunities to play catch, basketball, or even kickball with their friends. The hook and latch toss and catch games are perfect for students who want to interact with peers while working on their hand-eye coordination and motor skills. The Turtle Target Toss Game is perfect for students who enjoy tossing beanbags while also working to improve their hand-eye coordination and turn-taking skills with peers. The large tub with handles is the perfect size to store these wonderful new toys!

Please help me provide my students with activities that will keep them active and fit during recess so they can play with their friends and learn to live a healthier lifestyle!
