My Students

As a teacher of a special needs prekindergarten class, I am touched and inspired by my students. Every day, I am amazed to see their progress. It's the reason why I walk into school day after day with a smile on my face.

Working with these special students is a very rewarding journey because each step leads to finding out what that individual student is capable of.

When a child first walks into my classroom, most likely the day after they turn 3 years old, it is sometimes a monumental task just to separate them from their parents.

However, within a few days, these precious little ones settle in and become sponges, filling up with excitement to learn and experience new things. In my world of special education, I get to see some of the most amazing transformations. It sometimes reminds me of the process of an awkward caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly! Prekindergarten is where they acquire their wings, and I am so very proud to be part of that process.

My Project

This unit will make a difference in my students' learning beacause it will create a point of interest in our new science area. This year, I will be incorporating science and exploration into the Pre-K curriculum.

The shelves of this unit will be holding items ready for students to explore.

A hands-on science center is so important for these little ones because they are at the age where most things are learned through the five senses. The children will be invited to explore items both from indoors and outdoors. Please help.make this dream a reality for my student. Thanks in advance!
