My Students

Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." Oftentimes, students lose their love for learning because they make mistakes and encounter challenges with traditional methods of teaching.

In my classroom, my students and I work together to discover how to overcome barriers to success.

We make mistakes. We get messy. We don't just look outside the proverbial box of traditional teaching methods to determine how we learn best. Rather, we touch the box. We hear the box. We see the box. We smell the box. We...well, we try to skip tasting the box.

My students are the creators, innovators, and designers of our future. Each one of my students is an individual, with unique strengths and talents. Together, my students learn to collaborate as a team in today's world, to prepare for a future of independence. My students have special needs. One of their greatest needs is the ability to access their learning environment via multi-sensory modalities. Public school funding poses a barrier to our success as learners and educators. Daily, the processing of each of my students' brains inspires me. Please consider supporting us in achieving our goals.

My Project

Many of my students with special needs benefit from being able to see and feel concepts related to their learning. Students working on math concepts such as one-to-one correspondence, number identification, and simple addition benefit from engaging with objects and materials to make sense of abstract concepts.

Students struggling with math and reading become easily frustrated with long sessions in the classroom!

Acquiring a light-up table with accessories offers opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning that is flexible, fun, and movement oriented.

With your support, my students can practice these concepts related to math, reading, writing, and pre-academic skills through the use of the light-up table. Transparent numbers, letters, and manipulatives will highlight and emphasize what we are learning. Please help me provide these sensory-friendly activities to my students. Allow us to turn off the fluorescent lights in the classroom and turn on our imaginations!
