My Students

I teach a special education preschool program in a rural Utah town. My students consist of special education toddlers, age two to five, along with twelve typically developing children who serve as peer models. I have quite the spectrum of ability levels in my classroom from very young, differently abled children who are experiencing their first time away from parents, all the way up to pre-kindergarten students who are reading on their own.

I love teaching a broad spectrum of students.

I think what I enjoy the most about preschool age children is their ability to explore the world around them and find wonder in their imaginations. The reason I feel that our program is so special is that preschool is the only time that SPED children will experience full inclusion with their typically developing peers. I have seen so many benefits for developing children as they learn and play with each other.

My Project

Our students need Malmark Choir Chimes to continue with the Handchime Choir next year. The opportunity that Handchime Choir has provided, has been the first time many students have participated in a music program.

The use of handchimes enhances many aspects of teaching and learning.

Handchimes foster independence and interdependence in a group effort, allows students of varying levels of ability to play together, provides musical awareness, and ear training. There are many other benefits, such as handchimes support small/ large muscles and eye-hand coordination. These handchimes will develop life-long musical skills, with opportunities for outreach in the community.
