My Students

I am currently a 6th through 8th grade autistic support teacher to amazing students in a low income community. We are having a fabulous year! My students strive to be their best selves each day. They set high standards for themselves and push themselves to be their very best each day. We are an extremely close classroom with much to celebrate. I consider my classroom a second home for my kids and myself. I feel my students can go even further if they had access to technology in the classroom.

My Project

Seat sacks will provide each student with a special space for them to call their own. Students will have a storage space for their work and supplies conveniently located at their seat. This will minimize student traffic during transitions. With the right support and modeling, students will use their seat sacks to assume responsibility for keeping themselves organized. This will allow students more time for classroom work and activities and less time spent searching for their materials. This would minimize transition times.They will feel a sense of ownership, independence and success with a storage space of their own. Seat sacks will help save classroom time and space. In a 21st century world, self-management is imperative for students who will be college- or career-ready. One skill needed on the path to mastering self-management is the ability to keep oneself organized. This is the gift that seat sacks will provide my students.
