My Students

Welcome to our class, where every child is a Star! Our school is home of the Stars and our children shine bright and fill our class with enthusiasm and energy.

Our school helps service some of the most unique children in the city of Chicago!

The students here have a wide range of abilities. As a Special Education teacher it is my mission that my children feel safe and love school. Help me instill the love of learning in the little minds I teach.

My Project

The start of school is a time filled with excitement and enthusiasm; having the classroom well-equipped at the beginning of school will ensure the year starts on a positive note! I want to be prepared for the new school year, this is why I'm asking for a refrigerator to help keep our meals fresh!

Pablo Picasso says "Every Child is an Artist"!

I want to make sure my art center is ready for for my little artists to use! In order to set up my art center to run efficiently I want to set up a peg board wall to keep our supplies organized and a cork board to display our artwork!
