My Students

My students are excited about school because they are given the opportunity to learn through play! I encourage my students to explore the outdoor classroom and spark their curiosity through hands-on learning activities.

Preschool is the foundation for future success!

Our school is an inclusion program that believes in the success of all students. Our program serves children with various disabilities and strongly believes that all children deserve a high-quality preschool program. My goal is to close the achievement gap and motivate all my students to achieve their best!

My Project

My students need books that teach social skills and positive behavior in the classroom. Students with special needs learn through social stories, which helps them learn appropriate behavior in a social setting or in the classroom. The books, puzzles, and dolls reflect children with special needs. The materials requested will increase my students' awareness about the importance of inclusion.

Let's include all children with play materials used in the classroom!

The additional materials requested will support students with special needs in the general education setting in order for them to fully participate in the classroom and access the curriculum. The sensory mats will help my students participate in circle time with their peers.
