My Students

My students with special needs are excited to learn each and every day. Our school is located in a small, rural community that just was honored by Newsweek for "Beating the Odds." Many of my students participate in the free and reduced-price lunch program.

My students with special needs face many challenges but work hard to learn and grow each day.

Providing my students with as many engaging opportunities to learn is of the utmost importance to me, so they can meet their goals and take pride in their learning.

My Project

Allowing my students with autism and intellectual disabilities to learn through sensory exploration is a big part of our learning each day. My students not only learn differently, but they can also struggle with processing sensory information. This project would go a long way to making our classroom as sensory as possible.

The addition of a light panel, manipulatives, and sensory items for the panel would be incorporated in to all different types of learning.

My students would also be able to use these materials for free exploration or as a method of calming down when they get overstimulated. These materials will make sure that my students have the opportunity to learn in the way that is best for them with each lesson.
