My Students

I am the teacher to 12 wonderful special needs preschoolers! These kids are fun, sweet, charismatic and silly. I enjoy seeing their smiling faces when they participate in my classroom. They have disabilities that can encompass Autism, Orthopedic Disability, Language Impairment, Learning Disability, and Intellectual Disability.

Every day I go to work anticipating their smiling faces.

Their persistence in mastering everyday tasks that many people take for granted is inspiring. Working with the families of my students has been the highlight of my career.

My Project

Movement is at the very center of young children’s lives. It is an important facet of all aspects of their development, whether in the motor, cognitive, or affective domains of human behavior. To deny children the opportunity to reap the many benefits of regular, vigorous physical activity is to deny them the opportunity to experience the joy of efficient movement, the health effects of movement, and a lifetime as confident, competent movers.

Outside play is important for our preschool age children!

Gross motor (physical) skills are those which require whole body movement and which involve the large (core stabilizing) muscles of the body to perform everyday functions, such as standing and walking, running and jumping, and sitting upright at the table. They also includes eye-hand coordination skills such as ball skills (throwing, catching, kicking) as well as riding a bike or a scooter and swimming.
