My Students

My students are diagnosed with autism, however, that doesn't stop them from being students. Every day they surprise me with something new. Being a student in a D75 school is challenging, but the students always have a smile on their face.

Many of the students have disabilities such as autism, cognitive delays, emotional challenge, and sensory impaired.

In my classroom, there are 2 verbal and 4 nonverbal students.

My students are amazing! My students don't let their disability define them. Each student is capable of teaching me something new every day. My students are smart, brave, and very helpful every day. Each student shows me what a difference in their lives I can make.

My Project

This year, my class was chosen to participate in DreamYard Drumming. This is one of the first times my class has ever participated in a school activity. My class is partnered with another class who are on the same or close functioning level. DreamYard Drumming allows my students to drum and dance. Even though this is a great experience, I would like to my students to enjoy drumming even outside of DreamYard program.

Some of my students are unable to play the drums, however they are able to shake a tambourine.

DreamYard Drumming also allows my students to express themselves by dancing and playing a beat which the instructor follows on the drums. With the 3 bongo and the six player drum kit, my students will be able to create a beat which can be included into the rhythm. Having the tambourine, the students will be able to add another sound to the music. The led light up tambourines will light up the room while being played by the students.
