My Students

My students are definitely special. They all possess personal characteristics, fun personalities, and individual learning disabilities that make them amazing students. My students love all sorts of different things and have big dreams. Some want to be pilots, teachers, and even a veterinarian when they grow up. Some love to play soccer, eat pizza, and they all love different colors.

A "Student's Pass for EDucation" begins with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in the classroom.

No matter whether my students are in the special education room receiving services in small groups for their IEP (Individualized Education Program), engaged in Tier I instruction in their general education classroom as a whole group, or learning about how to keep their body healthy during PE as a grade-level, students need to have strategies and tools to be successful Social-Emotional Learners.

Learning disabilities come in a range of severity from mild/moderate in a regular school setting to functional skills in a special class to a unit at a special school. These students deserve the tools, supplies, and access to self-regulate in any setting at school, home, or a job, so they can become pilots, teachers, and veterinarians when they grow up.

My Project

Our classroom is designed to help students succeed by self-regulating their emotions during the school day. Whether this is by consuming food, manipulating putty, building with blocks, coloring a masterpiece, reading quietly while utilizing a fidget, or doing math projects, these items will encourage all of our students with individualized needs to be successful every day, all day. These students are hard-working and frequently rely on tools to help them succeed.

"It Makes Sense" to allow all students the opportunity to build effective social-emotional skills so that when they leave our classrooms they will be able to cope with everyday life.
