My Students

My kids are a great group of kids. They are 9th graders with Autism and other developmental disabilities. They need more than a teacher who tells them what to do, they need an adult who will listen to them and work with them on their individual needs. In the words of Temple Grandin:

"Kids have to be exposed to different things in order to develop.

A child’s not going to find out he likes to play a musical instrument if you never exposed him to it…"

I try to create a positive and interactive learning environment where my kids know that they are welcome, they are loved, they are appreciated, they are safe and they can succeed.

My Project

My students have lunch early in the morning and they get very hungry in the afternoon. These snacks of Goldfish, pretzels, and crackers help them stay focused on their learning throughout the day. They know if they work hard, they will be rewarded a snack in the afternoon. These snacks will make a tremendous impact on the lives of my students. Since my students are able to have a snack in the afternoon, they are able to stay on task and learn more in their cooperative learning centers. Please help my students become more motivated to learn through helping my class fund this project! Thank you so much for your support!
