My Students

"Every child is gifted, they just unwrap their packages at different times." (unknown)

My students have extremely diverse learning, physical, medical and sensory needs.

Our goals are always to meet every child at their individual level. We come to school every day ready for a challenging adventure together! A lesson plan is always in place but we are always ready to shift the plan to meet any child's emergent needs. Special Education is about daily flexibility and adaptation. We focus on the many ABILITIES of each and every student even when the lists of DISABILITIES are seemingly overwhelming.

My Project

As teachers of very young children (ages 3 & 4), we would like to provide healthy snacks throughout their school day. Due to the special needs and young age of many of our students, soft foods like yogurt and applesauce are the perfect option. However, without refrigeration, these foods may spoil. Many of our students require a pureed diet for safety. Some of our students are excited to learn how to feed themselves and a spoonful of yummy yogurt is a great motivator!. They may also need access to chilled fruit juices during their school day after fun physical activities.
