My Students

My students are smart, kind, and polite teens with special needs. They absolutely love coming to school and greeting each other with warm hugs and smiles.

My classroom consists of sixth to eighth grade students with diverse learning and communication needs.

Most of my students come from low income households with limited access to technology.

These students absolutely love coming to school each day and are always ready to learn. They care about each other and always try their best to complete any task asked of them. My students would be so appreciative of any help you could provide!

My Project

We have made it through the first half of the school year! This year has proven to be challenging as we still navigate a global pandemic, but my students have shown how resilient they are!

As we begin classes after winter break, we have realized we are out of several necessary supplies to keep our classroom running!

We need new crayons, dry erase markers, page protectors, paper clips, and modeling clay! We use these materials every SINGLE day and we would be so grateful for any help you could provide to our classroom. Thank you!
