My Students

My students are exceptional. Not only do they have special needs such as specific learning disabilities, high functioning Autism, and other cognitive challenges, they strive to do their best. They want to be loved and encouraged just as any other student would. My students make my day. Their smile, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn is amazing.

My students come from low-income family homes.

Despite this challenge, they are ready, willing, and excited to learn each and every day, all day.

My Project

Easy machines set will spark an interest in my students' learning through hands on activities that help them create small machines. My students want to create and explore! They learn best when engaged and involved. Having learning disabilities, they need accommodations, alternate, and creative ways to succeed academically.

My students want to learn all they can and with the right tools, they can!

Legos not only excite but also help with fine motor skills, reasoning, and problem solving. All of which students need to be successful now and in the future. I am helping prepare my students got the future now!
