My Students

The majority of my students (80%) are children with special needs. The other 20% are typically developing peers, chosen for their knowledge in pre-academics, social skills, self-help skills, and play skills. It is very important for special needs children to have access to the general education environment.

What makes my particular teaching situation even more interesting is that I teach on a military base, so most of my students face additional challenges because often one of their parents is deployed.

Most of my students with special needs have autism, speech and language impairment, or OHI (Other Health Impairment).

My Project

Many of my students have autism and speech/language delays, and in my years of teaching preschool, I have come to learn that play can be a universal language for all children in the early stages of development. I chose the LEGO sets because they aide in fine-motor development, mathematics, and social/play skills. I like to utilize STEM projects in my classroom for hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. If we foster learning through play, the chances of my special needs students being able to fully integrate into the general education classroom is that much greater. All children, whether they are typically developing or have special needs deserve to be educated in an enriching, motivating and fulfilling environment. Teaching children through art and play is my passion in this life! Thank you!
