My Students

My classroom is a wonderful place filled with hardworking students and staff. Every day, I fall just a little bit more in love with their amazing hearts and smiles. Each child has an individual education plan to help them make progress on goals in functional academics, behavior, life skills, communication, and functional life skills.

My students are full of curiosity, energy, and incredible potential.

We focus on the positive and celebrate every success that they achieve. Each day I do my best to make sure that they have the necessary tools to succeed, but it takes a lot of equipment and materials to help meet their unique needs.

With the help of DonorsChoose.org, I am able to provide unique and engaging materials to help my students, who experience a variety of disabilities, overcome their challenges and let their abilities shine through.

My Project

I am so excited to give my students the opportunity to run their own business. They will offer a beverage service for staff in our middle school by providing coffee, tea and reusable water bottles. Students will fill orders which will be sent via an on-line order form and then delivered to staff in the school. They'll use the coffee maker with the refillable pods and reusable mugs along with the stir sticks and sweeteners to complete the orders.

Once a week they will collect and keep track of the money raised as well as making sure we have the supplies on hand to fill orders for the next week.

Every few weeks the students will decide what to do with the money they earn from their beverage service. It might be a field trip, new class materials or helping out others in need during the holiday season.

This business will help my students work on communication skills, money/math concepts, social skills and so much more.
