My Students

I am a special education teacher at a residential/day-treatment school which services students with severe emotional and psychiatric disabilities.

We are a special needs school.

My students, ages six through eight years, come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. They struggle with their emotions, social skills and daily life. Like all kids, they need love and support. They need encouragement and to be motivated.

Given all the challenges in their lives, my students are great, loving and caring students. They accept new challenges daily and work hard to complete each task. They are eager to learn, but they need as many tools as possible. Given the right tools, my students will make significant improvements in learning and daily life skills.

My Project

Help me give our classroom the school supplies necessary for the 2019-2020 school year. I may not be able to control student's school budget and home lives but I can certainly control their their classroom environment and experience during the school day.

New school supplies can put some extra confidence in any teacher or student.

The beginning of the school year gets very expensive. Every teacher and student needs supplies to start a new school year. I want to organize and freshen up our classroom for the start of the new school year! These supplies will help me to create a comfortable organized environment.
