My Students

My students are in kindergarten and first grade.

They have disabilities including, but not limited to autism, specific learning disabilities in both auditory and visual processing delays, developmental delays and speech and language impairments.

Our school is located in a rough area of South Los Angeles where the majority of students come from very low income households. They are a great bunch of inquisitive, fun, and diverse learners who need extra support and resources to aid and enrich their learning.

My Project

Children are not natural organizers. Therefor I use folders to help my students organize papers and school assignments. Using different color folders also help keep things organized. By using different color folders I can tell my students, "put this paper in your red writing folder, or this paper goes in your black math folder." Our class supply of folders is running low, we need more folders to help my students keep organized and be more productive in class.

Thank you for reading this proposal, if you decide to make a donation, you will be helping my students maintain an organized desk and thereby helping them spend more time working on assignments instead of spending time looking for papers and assignments
