My Students

My students are an amazing and diverse group of learners. Students all work hard to achieve their potential both academically and emotionally. Learners in my classroom have a variety of strengths and skills that they strive to continue to develop. My students are creative, bright, talented, hard-working, and enthusiastic about learning. Their enthusiasm can be much better focused when they have an environment that is engaging and fits their learning style. We work together to create an environment that supports all styles of learning in ways that are dynamic and inclusive.

My Project

I am a first-year special education teacher building my classroom to help develop and reinforce student learning in fun and exciting ways! Students learn best when they are engaged and focused. Your gift will support learning by reinforcing the skills they are learning in their general education classroom with tools and games that support their individual learning styles.

"Who knew learning could be so fun?" "This is so cool, I didn't how to do this!" "Oh, I get it now!" Overheard from some students using math skill-building games and writer's workshop.

Traditional methods can be challenging for learners who learn differently. Supporting education through non-traditional methods often bridges the gap that is missing for many students. Your generous donation will provide educational games, skill-building materials, and classroom supplies that will reinforce and support these exceptional students.
