My Students

My students are some of the funniest, coolest people you will ever meet. My students are unique in that they have specfic needs that other students may not have. Although so many of my students will work so hard so that they can reach their potential and be seen as though they can achieve so much.

My students have dreams and they are working really hard to get to them.

My students come to school excited to learn and make friends.

My Project

I am a fourth year teacher and have had the opportunity to teach high school ALS after teaching K and 1 ALS for 3 years. I am excited but going to need to need some things to spark a new classroom. It’s a big change so I am going to need alot of new things. Alot of students in my class have pretty significant needs but it it my job for them to see their potential and to get them to reach their dreams. I am excited for them to be able to use this stuff and for it to help create a great learning environment.

My students need a carpet and beanbag to help create a positive and comforting learning environment.

My students need a boogie board for writing and life skills games to help make their learning fun but for it to also be at their level.
