My Students

Each day in my classroom is a new adventure. I have the privilege of working with an amazing group of students ages 7-12 with a varying range of special needs. My students face challenges in the area of cognition, speech, motor, and/or behavioral skills. Many are also directly impacted by Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders. This influences how they interpret and interact with the world around them. Their unique viewpoint has changed who I am as both a teacher and a parent. They challenge me to provide them with access to meaningful experiences and curriculum that will allow them to grow as future world citizens.

My students inspire and guide our classroom team as we work together to learn academic, social, and life skills.

We are a unique family that works together to meet each daily challenge head-on. No task is too large and no victory is too small. We love continually learning from our students as they show us the true meaning of perseverance.

My Project

Our new classroom pet, Lola, is a sweet and inquisitive rescue bunny. She enjoys company, playing with toys, and snuggling. She also loves to get out and explore. Lola has quickly bonded with my own children, and I know that she will make an excellent addition to our class family this August.

The addition of a classroom pet to our academic and life-skills centered curriculum will enhance endless lessons and provide daily opportunities for responsibility.

The materials requested will go directly to the care and well-being of Lola. She benefits from a diet that provides healthy base food, greens/hay, and occasional treats. A cozy bed is essential so that she feels snug and secure when she is ready for some rest. Fun and safe toys will provide stimulation and a healthy chewing outlet. AKC pads allow for a quick and easy cleanup of her cage tray to keep her "room" clean and pleasant. Finally, to allow her plenty of opportunity to stretch her legs, a portable play-yard will get her moving both in the classroom and outside.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our sweet Lola. It is my hope that Lola will provide countless opportunities for learning and loving for years to come.
