My Students

My classroom is the second home for 12 amazing little individuals! I teach Special Education and have the privilege of interacting with these 12 different personalities everyday!

My children all come from different challenging circumstances including homelessness, displacement, and abuse.

While being exposed to those challenges and having special needs it sometimes gets difficult for them to cope.

These students rely on me to make their classroom a comforting, safe and inviting place where they can continue to learn and thrive!

My Project

I am a first year special education teacher and I am determined to make this school year an amazing experience for both my students and me. I requested bean bag chairs, motivational posters that my students can see and draw motivation from and math flash cards to study as a group.

These supplies will not only help my students in regards to their seating options.

It will also give them a rug where they can gather for reading and class discussions!

My students deserve the opportunity to have a teacher who sees all the potential in the world for them and I will make sure that they have all the necessary material and tools they need to succeed!
