My Students

My students are 9th through 12th graders who are hard working, caring, and enthusiastic learners. The majority of our students have an extra challenge or two in their educational journeys as over 70% of our students are on IEPs that are designed to help them learn skills and find strategies to get around the symptoms of Autism, ADHD, and other learning disorders that impact their learning. In addition to having learning difficulties, many of our students also come from low-income households who qualify to receive two meals at school each day.

In grades 9-12, our students are taking more responsibility for their learning and career goals on a daily basis, and they are trying to find the ways that work for them to meet their own organizational and time management needs.

Our students who have these learning disorders that affect interpersonal skills are learning not only how the world works through a historical lens, but how to be successful in developing skills like interpersonal communication, working as part of a group in society, self-advocacy, and personal responsibility and accountability.

My Project

Students with learning disorders like Autism and ADHD often excel at expressing their learning in different ways, and my students have demonstrated an extreme amount of talent in the area of Art. We all have different ways of learning, and similarly, some of us show our learning better through art than speaking or writing.

While we have Chromebooks for research and work in Google Classroom for the day-to-day work, I would like to have students build teamwork/social skills through working in groups to create visual representations of their learning every quarter and be able to create a "social studies" exhibition on a quarterly basis.

The presentation boards I am requesting will help us to have supplies available to students who prefer to work with physical supplies as opposed to limiting students to creating presentations on Chromebooks. Students will also benefit from having access to fine line markers and colored pencils when we are working on map skills.
