My Students

As a self contained special education room serving students with instructional and behavioral needs, my students benefit from a structured setting that utilizes hands on manipulatives, lots of movement, and sensory integration. We are a new classroom and we are trying to build the resources needed to meet the needs of all the students in the classroom.

My students come into school everyday, looking to learn, grow and looking to the staff to provide a safe and predictable learning environment.

We learn, we teach, we investigate, we predict, we laugh, we cry, we grow, we struggle, we persevere, we support one another, we meet our goals and celebrate our successes.

It's not always easy, but really, the things worth it in life are not going to be. It's not about perfection, it's all about growth. And we are always growing!

My Project

I just opened my K-1 self-contained special education classroom in January. My students are working a couple grade levels behind their peers and would benefit from more hands on learning tools and games for them to practice and generalize their skills. My students also benefit from sensory integration throughout the day, and would greatly benefit from a variety of sensory tools to help them grow in their self-regulation skills.

Students learn better when they are engaged in their work.

Your donations will give my students tools and games that provide a variety of learning experiences that will keep them engaged in learning for longer periods of time. They will also gain more experience working with each other utilizing the games and sensory tools, which is a skill that we work on daily.
