My Students

Our school of seven classrooms is small but we service over 100 children in our diverse city. We have occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, physical therapists, a board-certified behavioral consultant, a school psychologist, and a school adjustment counselor to help our students grow and learn. We all come from different backgrounds and cultures!

Each child here is an individual and is learning at their individual developmental level.

My classroom includes students with and without disabilities and are part of a multi-age classroom of 3-5 year olds. In our classroom, everyone is different and that's okay! Each one of us learns at our own pace!

My Project

This new easel and painting supplies will make a difference in the lives of my students by replacing the broken easel we currently have in our classroom. New supplies will help my students develop our fine and gross motor muscles! Large areas for painting help my students create projects that align with our curriculum and inspire their creativity! We can also expand our multisensory development with these materials! By replacing our broken easel, students will be able to use the paint trays to hold their paints which right now are broken! My students love to paint at the easel and it would be wonderful for them to have the opportunity to have new supplies!
