My Students

I don't teach my students...they teach me: patience, endurance, happiness, humility, and most of all how to be better today than I was yesterday!

I teach special needs preschool students.

I teach them from the day they turn three years old, if they qualify for services, and they leave me when they enter kindergarten. My particular classroom contains mainly students with Autism or students who thrive in a more visual, structured classroom. Each and every student has something to teach me. I only hope that I can teach them something during the short time they are with me.

My Project

Children learn best through play. Children want to play with toys that excite them, have bright colors and make noises. Special Needs children need for us to go the extra mile and teach them how to play appropriately with toys while providing them with new and exciting toys to explore and learn to use. I have requested new toys and manipulatives such as sensory toys, a shapes puzzle board, a spiral play tower, and a shape sorting tray. These toys will help my students with fine motor skills, cognition, science, and language.

These small additions to my classroom will help me keep my children stimulated and continue to grow and learn.

They, like typical children, become bored doing the same work day after day. I need new and creative ways to stimulate them.
